White wine with black grapes: these winegrowers who reinvent themselves with innovative vintages

Further east, in Lussac-Saint-Emilion, Jean-Baptiste Bourotte also produces a blanc de noirs. It's a first try, but the one who runs the Château du Courlat feels that the amateurs are receptive. “ We put it on the market in March 2024. There is a lot of curiosity.
