2021 Melon de Bourgogne
The Melon from our site is quickly becoming one of our superstar whites in the Johan line-up! After a 36-hour skin maceration, we pressed the juice off the skins, then barrel fermented and aged the wine on its original lees for 10 months. This extended ‘sur lie’ aging is inspired by the classic wines of the Muscadet region of the Loire Valley, yielding a complex and compelling expression of Melon from our marine sedimentary soils. Our interpretation "rhymes" with theirs, so to speak, but with a new world voice with which we deeply resonate.
