The nose is a delicacy in itself, like a great fruit liqueur (cherry, morello cherry, raspberry) of infinite grace. The palate is just as seductive: it is suave, bursting with the fresh fruit and citrus flavours typical of the region, with hints of pot pourri. The wine’s sovereign balance makes it hard to wait. But it will age beautifully!

Fabien Duperray has all the talents of wine, or almost all of them. A "haute couture" wine merchant in his first life (he still is!) in order to offer the greatest wines of Burgundy and elsewhere to restaurants and international customers, he also launched himself into the production of great wines from Beaujolais (where he lives) with the 2007 vintage; then into the production of whites from Mâconnais since the 2014 vintage, in collaboration with the winemaker Christophe Thibert.

Today he is unanimously recognised for this double production in France, in Europe and even throughout the world, winning the best rankings and scores. The recipes for his success are simple and at the same time very demanding: organic and even biodynamic viticulture, which does not cheat and goes to the end of its ideas; meticulous work on the soils; drastic control of yields; and finally a unique precision in the choice of harvest dates (to the nearest half-day).

In the cellar, the wines are matured with little or no wood, in order to preserve the identity of each cru and not to disguise the identity of the terroir, including the whites, which is rare in Burgundy. We therefore propose the following three wines to measure the very high quality of the work accomplished.
