Domaine Dandelion Corail
Grapes: Pinot Noir, Gamay, Aligoté
Christian Knott and Morgane Seuillot of Domaine Dandelion have two hectares of old vines in a patchwork of small plots around the village of Meloisey near St Romain. Viticulture is organic with some biodynamics - Christian and Morgane spray raw milk on the vines instead of sulphur and eschew any machinery in the vineyards, preferring to employ their trusty horse. Once harvested by hand, the grapes are pressed in an old wooden screw press and aged in neutral oak under their house before bottling without filtration or sulphur.
Corail is Pinot Noir, Gamay and Aligoté from the Gouttes d'or Parcel, all blended into one cuvée as cosequence of the severely frost affected 2019 vintage. Pure, lifted and open, this is a real delight that sits somewhere between a deep rosé and light red.
