2016 Domaine Des Grands Rouvres Chenas les Buchennet
You can’t ignore the seashell fossils that crunch underfoot as you walk through the Durdilly family vineyards, as if the ocean were just over the next gentle hill. It’s this unique terroir, with its mineral complexity, that sets the family’s wines apart from other more rustic bottles from the region.
Guillaume Durdilly is the son of Pierre Durdilly of Domaine les Gryphées. His passion? Seeking out older-vine vineyards that have been abandoned, and then bringing them back to the greatness of which they are capable.
Chénas is one of Beaujolais’ more rare crus, located between Julienas and Moulin-à-Vent, and is the smallest Beaujolais cru appellation in terms of land. A gorgeous Gamay chock-full of red fruit and light spice.
