Description

Overview: The Chardonnay comes from 30-year-old vines with south-facing exposures in the Village of Préhy. Soils are Kimmeridgian with alternate layers of limestone and marls containing fossilized marine bodies, and the vines are farmed biodynamically. After harvest, the wine is pressed and fermented using native years in stainless steel tanks. The wine is then aged in tank for 9 months and malolactic fermentation is completed at this time. Aromatically this wine is tart, with notes of lemon oils and mango skin, as well as a bit of minty herbaceousness. On the palate, there are flavors of honey, tropical fruits just barely ripened, as well as a finish of bracing acidity

Tasting Notes: Smoky, flinty notes suggest some reduction at first but open nicely to reveal green-plum and yuzu aromas. Sourced from a single vineyard of 30-year-old, organically farmed vines, it's a fresh, cutting lime and lemon sip with a long, delightfully chalky finish. The wine drinks well young but should hold through 2027.

Pairing: Shellfish, salmon, tuna, solegateau net for pears, vanilla cream.
