The 2017 Beaujolais Blanc from Domaine Dupeuble is an awesome intro into dry white wines.
I personally have only JUST been getting into dry whites (I've been on a red kick lately), and I LOVED how floral and fruity this wine is.
Type of wine:
Beaujolais blanc (aka Chardonnay)
Strong and sweet, with hints of flowers and pears.
This wine is great for people who like a light wine that is somewhat "sweet" - it has no sugar but because it has the fruit and flower undertones it could fool many sweet drinkers.
It's got a pretty long finish. It will seat itself pleasantly on your tongue for a good 2 - 5 minutes after your sips!
Medium-bodied, due to the Chardonnay.
It isn't too light - pleasantly round in the mouth.
In what situation would I drink this wine?
Any time, especially during the holidays (when Beaujolais is most common). Is a great introduction into dry white wines for someone ready to make that jump from a semi-sweet world to a drier one.
What would I pair this with?
Definitely anything that is fish related or spicy. Light fish dishes, any Thai food and sushi!
