Domaine de la Douaix
Located in Arcenant, in the Hautes Côtes de Nuits, Domaine de la Douaix was created in 2006 by the Moustie family, originally from Belgium. It is the source of the Douaix that gave its name to the estate. Assisted in the vineyard by Claude Bourguignon and, for the work of vinification and maturing, by the oenologist Pierre Milleman, Mark Moustie and his son Gilles produce excellent Burgundies. Owners of plots in several appellations, they are currently converting to organic farming. Yields are limited to about 35 hl/ha.
Bourgogne "En Mairey"
The composition of the soil in the Arcenant plots lends itself particularly well to the production of a white wine: clay of superior quality, with a limestone component that gives the wine its mineral touch. The average age of the vines is over forty years.
Chardonnay and Pinot Blanc are harvested by hand and are double sorted. Some of the grapes are lightly crushed. The must is stored for two days in stainless steel vats to extract the lees. Fermentation is started using only indigenous yeasts. The estate's whites are aged in oak barrels (1/4 new barrels) for 12 to 24 months. They are fined and filtered only when necessary.
Light yellow colour, perfectly limpid.
Beautiful fruity nosewith aromas of white peach and apple. Mineral touch brought by the Pinot Blanc.
Ample in the mouth, with a light woody retro-olfaction.
