Patrice Beguet - 2020 'Three Views of the Secret' Blanc

2020 'Three Views of the Secret' Blanc

Alsace, France

Roses and jasmine, lychee and grated nutmeg. How beautiful! This blanc has a rosewater feel; pretty and delicate, yet its tannic backbone builds body and strength from mid to end. Organic Gewürztraminer from Alsace. All natural, no added sulphur.

Winemaker Patrice Béguet, originally from the Jura, left home for a jaunt as an IT consultant in Paris. As is the case, city life never quite stuck, and the call back to home led him and his wife Caroline Hughes back to the Jura. They purchased heritage vineyards on great terroir, and set up a small winery under their house in Mesnay. They own 4.5 hectares of vineyard in the AOC Arbois appellation at over 300metres above sea level, including one of the most coveted slopes of Arbois. Coveted in the Jura is a big deal in the natural wine game! The pair make unbelievably exciting wines, each one full of twists and turns.
