Producer Note
Domaine de la Belouse is a family winery based in the Mâconnais in southern
Burgundy. The estate was established in 1970, with just one hectare of vineyard around
la Roche Vineuse and Saint Véran. Since then, the estate has grown little by little and
now cultivates 42 hectares. In 1999, a cellar was built, comprising new temperature
controlled oak barrels and stainless steel vats. The Domaine is certified Haute Valeur
Environmentale (HVE), which officially recognises the environmental performance of
winegrowers, including biodiversity conservation, plant protection strategies, managed
fertiliser use and water resource management.
Vintage
The growing season began with an unusually mild winter, which led into a clement
spring. Warm weather during the spring cumulated in an unnaturally warm April,
prompting early budburst and flowering. This set the scene for a rapid growing season,
with a hot, dry summer and low rainfall resulting in arid conditions. Fortunately,
cleansing winds breezed through the vineyards, which helped keep the vines free from
disease. Harvest took place earlier than usual due to the warm growing season and
the whites show excellent balance, with good texture and structure.
Vineyard
The vineyard is located at 300 metres above sea level in the Mâcon-Milly-Larmartine
appellation, to the north-west of Mâcon. The vines have an average age of 35 to 40
years and are planted on a chalky clay-limestone soil, which is renowned for producing
elegant wines. The vineyard benefits from good exposure to sunlight, promoting
ripening and concentration of flavour in the fruit. Yields are kept low to enhance
concentration. Planting takes place between the rows to control soil erosion and to
promote biodiversity and the vineyard is carefully, manually cultivated throughout the
year. Harvesting takes place when the grapes have reached optimal maturity.
Winemaking
Slow, cool fermentation took place with selected yeasts in temperature controlled
stainless steel tanks in order to preserve the fruity aromas and flavours and the varietal
characteristics of the Chardonnay grapes. Vinified without the influence of oak and
bottled young to retain the fruity and zesty appeal.
