Deliciously intense Beaujolais
This is a bargain. An elegant Chardonnay from the Chantemerle vineyard near Beaujeu. Ages magically but already lovey when young.
I know Chardonnay is hard to sell on a niche site like ours, so when I take some there's a reason! This one is just fabulous - I love this wine.
Only 2% of Beaujolais Production is white and a large percentage of this is blended with Chardonnay from Burgundy and labelled Bourgogne Blanc.
This is 100% fruit from Beaujolais which is elegantly oaked in 2nd/3rd and 4th fill barrels. It's rich, warm, fruity, and tongue tingling.
In youth its led by fresh fruit aromas of pear, citrus and pineapple. With maturity it's honeyed, nutty and complex yet still retains its acidity.
Similar in style to wines of the Maconnais which it's in close proximity to.
