Why We Have It

It's one of the best oaked examples of this lesser known style of Chardonnay

Why Choose This?

Choose it young if you like primary aromas or with some maturity if you like the tertiary notes

What to expect

Maconnais style with complexity and freshness

More about

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. 

Similar in style to wines of the Maconnais which it's in close proximity to.

More

This wine is fermented at low temperature to keep the varietal aromas of Chardonnay. MLF is blocked and the wine is aged on its lees with weekly batonnage to add some texture in 2nd/3rd/4th fill barrels. Bottling is after a minimum of 9 months of ageing.
