Bourgogne Chardonnay Elegance
Bourgogne Chardonnay is a regional AOC created in 1937, covering the départements of Yonne, Côte-d'Or and Saône-et-Loire.
Vinification & Elevage
The grapes are harvested by hand and placed in small crates to prevent the bunches being compacted. For our white wines, the grapes are brought whole to our pneumatic wine press. Slow gentle pressing allows the juices to be extracted in the best possible conditions. These juices are then placed in a settling vat and cooled to 8° for 24 hours to clarify them. Lastly, they are placed directly in oak barrels (20 % of which are new) for alcoholic fermentation over 10-12 months.
Commentaries by our oenologist
"The distinctiveness of this wine is its vinification and ageing entirely in oak barrels. Colour: grey-gold. Nose: lightly toasted, white flowers, and generous. In the mouth it is mineral, full-bodied and rounded, with an acidic finish. A rich wine. Serve between 8 and 10°C. "
It is perfect with seafood and poultry in sauce.
