Hughes Beguet, Three Views Of A Secret Blanc, 6 Bottle Case
Equivalent Bottle Price £27.99
All from organic fruit and hand harvested. A blend of 40% Gewürztraminer, 30% Pinot Gris and 30% Muscat all from Alsace. The whole lot is destemmed and sits on skins for 4 weeks in stainless. No filtration and no sulphites at any stage.
Floral roses and jasmin, lychee, brown stalk and grated nutmeg. Has a rosewater feel but tannic backbone that builds body from mid to end. Super interesting blend and fun to drink.
Patrice Hughes Beguet is one of seemingly many relatively recent Jura transplants who fled desk jobs in big cities to make their home in this wild, sub-Alpine corner of France. Obviously the characterful local varieties (Savagnin, Trousseau, Poul/Plou-ssard) are a big draw for any aspiring winemakers, and Patrice handles them with all the familiarity and grace of one of the region’s stalwart producers - making dependably delicious, often experimental wines vintage-in, vintage-out.
