Dufaitre, Beaujolais Nouveau
|Availability:||In stock (12)|
Rémi and Laurence (his former wife) Dufaitre began purchasing vines in and around the Brouilly and Cote de Brouilly crus in 2006, he began to work the land organically, and started harvesting the grapes. Rémi started by selling his grapes to the local co-op, all the while monitoring the indigenous yeast population until he felt it was healthy enough to make his own wine. In 2010 he made and bottled his first vintage. When Jean Foillard tasted Rémi’s wine, he immediately sought him out, recognizing the obvious talent that must be behind the wine. Jean has since taken Rémi under his wing, introducing him to his vast and diverse list of Parisian clients.
he Nouveau is fermented as whole bunches in concrete tanks and bottled quickly to preserve the fresh first taste of the vintage.
