Domaine Guy & Yvan Dufouleur – Le Montrachet 2011
Established in Nuits-Saint-Georges in 1596, the Dufouleur family has a rich heritage in Burgundian winemaking. Today, Guy and Yvan –the father-son duo of the 13th and 14th generations– tend the family’s 30 acres of vines spread out over eleven appellations. Organic since 2000, the estate produces around 160,000 bottles per annum, limiting yields by green harvesting and picking and sorting all fruit by hand. As head winemaker, Yvan combines the ancestral methods taught to him by his father with the modern viticultural technologies available today to create authentic wines reflecting their terroir.
Elegant, charming, full of finesse, Dufouleur wines above are above all the fruit of the labour and know-how abiding by the family’s golden rule: “Respect the grapes”.
