Bourgogne Côte Chalonnaise Chardonnay
This wine is made exclusively from Chardonnay grapes.
The grapevines are located between Buxy and Saint Gengoux le National and are generally grown on hilltops. The soil is very shallow, sometimes the foundation rock itself. The earth is heavily pebbled.
These grapes are grown from calcareous soil with high limestone content on the Cote Chalonnaise. The slopes are gentle and face towards the east and southeast.
The wine is aged first in stainless steel vats, then in oak barrels or casks. How long the wine is aged in casks depends on the vintage.
With a fine pale golden hue, the nose is very fruity (grapefruit, lemon, citrus), with hints of honeysuckle and hawthorn. This wine has a clean, lively bite, with an aftertaste that is reminiscent of aniseed. A fine expression of Chardonnay.
An excellent starter wine that pairs well with fish tarts, seafood gratins, or grilled or marinated vegetables. More generally, it is excellent with escargot, white meats, and goat cheese.
Best consumed seven years after its harvest Serving temperature between 11 and 13°C.
Available in bottle.
