So what does that mean for us consumers? This is in fact good news as the quality is still high and the price more affordable.
I came across this Domaine while in London. Domaine Lois Dufouleur. A totally new domain to me. Lovely silky textured wine. Smooth delicate fruit. Great balance.
So I asked the sommelier if he could tell me about the "manager" of this wine. To which he responded;
I can, but you might as well talk to the young man next to you- that's his son!
So here I was in London drinking this gorgeous Beaune premier cru and next to me was the son of the producer nipping a to great Barbaresco. A place he had not visited but which I had. And he was in London as he wanted a change from Beaune, a place I just love. Isn't life just fun sometimes?
