2018 Domaine R. Dubois & FIls Hautes-Cotes de Nuits Blanc Les Tremblots

$22.99

Producer: Domaine R. Dubois & FIls
Region: Hautes-Cotes du Nuits, Burgundy, France
Varietal: Chardonnay
Year: 2018

The vineyard for this wine is located on a hillside, planted on south- and west-facing slopes which benefit from maximum exposure to the sun’s warmest rays.

Being located in a cooler climate, this type of sun exposure is ideal for maximum fruit ripeness levels. 

    Elaboration: 

    "The grapes harvested with machines are pressed in order to extract the juice, which is placed after in a vat to a static racking of the must. The clear juice is lodged in barrels and in vat where it will be sowed in yeast to start off the alcoholic fermentation. Temperature controlled fermentation occurs between 61 and 66° F in order to obtain a youthful aroma. After 10 days of fermentation, the wines are racked and cellared. Wines stay in the cellar for 6 months where it undergoes malolactic fermentation, which allows a stabilizing of the structure of the wine."

    Tasting Notes: 

    "This wine has a firmness, tempered by the softness of Chardonnay. Its structure is both elegant and strong thanks to the time it spends in new oak barrels. Nice gold color. The first nose is citrus fruit and apples to evolve to honey and toasted nuts."

    About the Winery:

    "The history of Dubois winegrowers begins around 1600 with the birth of Emiland Dubois, the first ancestor and winegrower to be found in official records. More recently, Louis Dubois (1874 – 1947) took over his first plot of vines in 1898, then developed the estate with 5 acres of vines in the village of Premeaux-Prissey and Nuits-Saint-Georges. His son, Robert (1910 – 2004), devoted his life to the estate’s vines, and further increased its size by acquiring his first Nuits Premier Cru plot in 1961. Régis Dubois (born 1939), took up the reins with his wife Christiane, and extended the vineyard from 10 to 25 acres, and then to 50 acres. To increase the value of the wine, he began to bottle the production from 1969 onwards. Presently, Régis manages the technical matters of the domaine.

    The fourth generation begins in 1969 with the birth of Raphaël. Since 2006, the vineyard has been managed by Raphaël and his sister, Béatrice Dubois. Raphaël oversees the marketing of the wines and public relations. Béatrice is an oenologist who is truly passionate about wine. She divides her time between producing, analyzing and monitoring the estate’s wines, and customer tastings all over the world, which have now replaced her vinification work in the southern hemisphere."
