Cote de Nuits-Villages Blanc Domaine Gilles Jourdan 2018

Cote de Nuits-Villages Blanc Domaine Gilles Jourdan 2018

Gilles Jourdan established his eponymous domaine in 1998, having looked after the family holdings since 1970, whilst making wine at Bichot in Beaune. Far from the main road, in the village of Corgoloin, Gilles has an engagingly shy, self-effacing manner though he is, unsurprisingly, fiercely proud of his vines and wines. Gilles’ chai is tiny. A central garage-like space is crammed with bottling equipment and a small tasting table, with a bottle cellar to one side and a barrel cellar to the other. Gilles has 40 pickers to call upon at harvest. He tends to harvest later than his neighbours, as demanded by his older, low production vines.

"This is a young vineyard – just over a decade old – planted mid-slope on limestone, with a little clay in the mix. A year maturing in oak (around a third new) gives a touch of richness to the ripe white peach fruit. This may be young – but it’s growing up… assertive in 2018…. impressive."
