Charles Dufour Ballad of the Villages Brut Nature 2004 750ml

Product price



This wine is called ‘Robert Dufour’ because it was in fact produced by Charles and his father, Robert, before Charles officially took over the domaine and renamed it. It’s 100% 2004 vintage, with the cuvée name referring to the fruit for the wine taken from each of the four villages where vineyards are held by the family: Landreville, Chervey, Neuville, and Celles-sur-Ource. Fermentation and aging of the base wine was all in stainless steel tank; tirage was done in early May 2005; and then, in Charles’ words, “This wine stayed on the lees in bottles in the cellar at Rue de la Croix Malot without ever being commercialized. First in, first out. ;) We disgorged 3000 bottles in May 2022 just for the fun of discovering what it’s like.”
