IGP Terre Burgondes ‘Beurot’ Emmanuel Giboulot, organic and natural wine, 100% Pinot Beurot, age old local Burgundian variety of Pinot Blanc, barrel aged, creamy and delicious with fresh acidity. This very small production wine from Giboulot is only produced in certain vintages from a tiny plot of vineyard planted to ‘Beurot’ which is the same grape as Pinot Blanc but has been planted in Burgundy for centuries. The wine is naturally fermented and then aged in barrels with natural malolactic usually taking place. The wine is a unique balance of freshness, zip and acidity and a lovely mouth coating warmth and richness. Not Chardonnay but very definitely white Burgundy.

Emmanuel Giboulet is somewhat of a renegade in the Burgundy bubble, resisting wholeheartedly the use of chemicals and pesticides in the vineyard.

Stemming from his father's move to organic production after his mother became ill and they realised the impact chemicals were having on the land. Since taking over the estate in 1985 he has sought to increase the biodiversity and learn how to keep the vines healthy with natural balance. This behaviour risked getting him landed in jail when the appellation called for all vineyards to be sprayed with a chemical to protect the spread of 'flavescence dorée' and he refused. Luckily, due to huge support and the opening of the debate, he was allowed to continue and his approach has stood the test of time. He has now grown his holdings to nearly 10 hectares with small plots all over the Cotes de Beaune and some in Cotes de Nuits. He remains committed to his principles and he even has the enviable reputation of being 'supposedly' the only producer in Burgundy never to chaptalise his wines, and he never uses new oak, just used barrels. A purist through and through, for pure, authentic Burgundy, Giboulot is your man.
