Gonzalvez Escapade 2017
Winemaker France Gonzalvez is a true character and the wines continue her irreverent personality. She labels them all "Vin de France" even though that is a legal term describing effectively a Vin de Table, and her wines are technically Beaujolais Villages AOP. She claims that this is fine because she is called France, and she has been using it for a while, but does admit that the French customs police have mentioned it...
Now it's not everyday you see a white Beaujolais, and you should definitely try this one. Made from 100% Chardonnay and natural yeasts with ageing in neutral barrels this expresses the granite soils it comes from beautifully. Citrus, lime and hazelnut along with a hint of minerality.
ABV : 12,5%
