Domaine Dandelion Hautes Cotes de Beaune Rouge 2019
Pre-release for March delivery
Following a bad vintage for frost, this year the Dandelion Pinot is an assemblage of the majority of their vineyard parcels, vinified separately then blended together. Delicate, understated red Burgundy with an underlying, uplifting energy.
Morgane & Christian are a couple working just over 2 hectares of vines around the Beaune to produce a mere 5000 bottles a year of pure, bright and singular Burgundy. Christian is Australian and met Morgane, a native Burgundian, whilst manning his espresso cart at a market in Beaune. They work their vineyards according biodynamic principles and we think it's fair to say that they could be the only growers in our shop who spray their vines with raw milk rather than chemical herbicides or pesticides. The resulting wine is delicate, nuanced and a real find considering how difficult it can be for small scale vignerons to exist in this part of France with the price of land being so high. Needless to say we have just a handful of bottles.'
