RATINGS

91Vinous / IWC

...intense, voluminous bouquet of yellow flowers, white peach and crushed stone aromas...palate has a rounded texture on the entry...pure and quite persistent finish.

90The Wine Advocate

...notes of citrus oil, green pear, wheat toast and pastry cream...medium to full-bodied, seamless and fine-boned, with racy acids and a delicate core of fruit. Pretty and elegant, it's one of the more ethereal wines in the range.

It is up the slope and west of many of the appellation’s Premier Cru vineyards, and in fact wasn’t farmed as a vineyard until the mid-20th century, when the land was cleared of rocks and scrub. The elevation is 300 to 380 meters.

TYPE

This white variety originated in Burgundy, but is now grown around the world. Its flexibility to thrive in many regions translates to wide flavor profile in the market. Chardonnay is commonly used in making Champagne and sparkling wines.
