A classic that never goes out of style.
On the nose an explosion of citrus notes, tropical fruit and a hint of vanilla. It is very complex yet elegant, combining the ultimate cool climate chardonnay characteristics with a natural approach to wine-making. The wine is dry and its taste incredible. What will surprise you it the minerality and acidity of the wine. This chardonnay is chalky, fresh and aromatic. The body is not heavy and it shines for its finesse and elegance, leaving a very long aftertaste.
This chardonnay is a wine made from a 30 year-old cool-sited vineyard in the Côte Mâconnais. It is pressed without SO2, settled then racked to large-format barrels for a native fermentation. Then it is aged undisturbed on lies for seven months with a light filtration before bottling.
As the winemaker Andrew Nielsen says:
"Our job is to ensure the wine reaches it's true potential; working by hand, with small lots, giving each wine as much care and attention as our viticulteurs have paid to the vines. "
