Lou Dumont Cuvee Famille Bourgogne Blanc 2018
- White Wine
This generic white Burgundy is one of the best when it comes to value for money. The nose has notes of grilled bread, hazelnut and vanilla, ripe yellow fruit on the palate, fresh butter and a velvety soft texture.
Lou Dumont, located in Gevrey Chambertin, was established in 2000 by Japanese sommelier and oenologist Koji Nakada and his wife Jae Hwa Park and in 2012 purchased their first parcels of land in Burgundy: no small feat for a non-native Burgundian. The name Lou Dumont is a combination of their goddaughter's name, Lou, and the French for mountain, paying homage to the areas in Japan and Korea where Koji and Jae Hwa grew up. The Kanji symbol on the label: sky, earth and man, refer to the basic elements which make wine possible and the concept of terroir. Koji's goal is to produce pure, honest, regionally correct Burgundy from organically farmed grapes and with minimal manipulation.
