2015 François Dhumes Nuit Blanche auvergne, france
$70

François is a soft-spoken young vigneron, a native from Auvergne who shares his time between his own small surface of vineyards and outside work for organic winemakers Patrick Bouju's and Vincent Tricot.
Francois’ 3 ha of vines are located on the hill of Corent planted with Gamay d'Auvergne and Chardonnay on limestone and basalt. His work in the cellar is as hands of as can be with his strong commitment to zero additions winemaking shining through his expressive wines. Francois is one of the rising stars of the Auvergne and his individual wines are expressive and truly delicious. Ver serious Chardonnay here - almost Burgundian.
