Château de Bousval, Jardins de Wallonie
It is with great excitement that we launch into the UK arena Château de Bousval’s thrilling, biodynamic wines from Belgium`s Jardins de Wallonie. The property was the genesis of nature lover, Michel Verhaeghe de Naeyer, who, a decade ago, wanted to breathe life into 5 hectares of abandoned fields. He saw the potential for vineyards in an area once deemed to be too cool for vines – lying further north than Champagne. The first vines were planted in 2014, an environmentally-friendly approach being key:
“Wine doesn`t just taste of its native land; it radiates the way in which it has been cultivated,” says Michel. “This is not a heritage wine; it is a burgeoning wine. It is the result of an alchemy between the young vine and the Belgian sun, myriad flora and fauna, and the micro-organisms found in the Bousval soil.”
Showcasing the property’s outstanding 2019 Chardonnay Gouttes d’O and Pinot Gris Petit Gris, both coming in at natural alcohol levels of 12%, these are exceptional examples of cool climate whites, made perfectly in tune with nature.
