One of the leading natural and biodynamic producers nowadays, Yann Durieux is a rising star who vinified his very first vintage at the mere age of 13. He was determined to establish his winemaking career in Burgundy and started his wine journey at Domaine Prieuré-Roch, which he stayed for over 10 years before setting up his own winery in 2010. His domaine was the revival of his family's winery and vineyards - the Recrue des Sens family - which is a small area of just 3 hectares up the hills of Hautes-Côtes-de-Nuits, with DRC as its neighbour, and the age of vines averaging 50 years old. His philosophy is to produce wines as naturally as possible - practicing the principles of organic agriculture and zero-use of chemicals; using whole bunches, natural yeasts and no sulphur. Despite his young age, his passion, detailed-mindedness and perfectionist approach has led to the creation of some of the most elegant, fresh and pure wines that many fans of Leroy, Prieure Roch, Leflaive and such would appreciate.
Today, we are pleased to present to you his 'Love and Pif' 2017, a Bourgogne Blanc made naturally from single-variety Aligoté that are from vines over 40 years old and planted in clay-calcareous soils, aged for 10 months in stainless steel tanks with no addition of sulphur and bottled without any filtering. Though Aligoté is generally considered as a second-class grape variety, it is truly shining - elegant and delicate - under the 'magical' hands of Yann Durieux -
