Henry Fessy Beaujolais Blanc

Henry Fessy Beaujolais Blanc is a rare and refreshing white Beaujolais that is grown on granite soils. This terroir produces a Chardonnay of great finesse, revealing notes of white flowers and acacia on the nose and yellow fruits, notably mirabelle plums, in the mouth.

Chardonnay is the predominant grape variety in the Mâconnais, however it represents less than 3% of grapes grown in the Beaujolais. The particularity of

Located in the heart of Brouilly appellation since 1888, Henry Fessy is a family company specialized in the production of the Beaujolais Crus.

The heart of Henry Fessy’s domaine is on the Plâteau de Bel-Air, a named vineyard in the commune of Saint Jean d’Ardières at the centre of the Brouilly appellation. It is on the foothills of Mont Brouilly overlooking the Sâone plains; set on a hill and very sunny. Granite schist soils overlay shale bedrock and a special micro-climate produce fruity, silky wines with fine tannins and flavours of red fruits and spice.

They work our 70 hectare domaine with respect for nature; restricting work to what is strictly necessary and beneficial for our vines. This philosophy extends to limiting their yields to 40 hectolitres per hectare which helps them to produce elegant and generous wines which fully express their vineyard and growing season. Experience, tradition and respect for our expertise accumulated over more than a century have made Henry Fessy a recognised quality wine producer in the region.

At Henry Fessy they are anxious to preserve and promote the diversity of the Beaujolais Cru vineyards. They continued to expand their domaine by acquiring venerable old vineyards across the region and are owners of land in nine of the 10 Crus. The vineyards of Château des Labourons and Château des Reyssiers and our single parcel selections represent the pinnacle of their range which extends over 24 appellations and includes white appellations in Mâcon, because of the areas close proximity to Beaujolais. Their Beaujolais wines are fruity and round in the mouth and our Macon wines are elegant with subtle floral aromas.

Jean-Claude Bachelet Puligny Montrachet Les Aubues 2017

This is really classy in 2010, the first year with the name of the lieu-dit on the label. A beautiful floral nose, dancing fruit, charming and balanced, it possesses an excellent racy acidity and is altogether a great success. From 50-year-old vines in Les Aubues, an enclave within better known Enceigneres, this is very attractive with quite a full nose and an excellent finish.
