Steel Chardonnay

Region: France / Burgundy

This unoaked Chardonnay combines the minerality of the Maconnais with the body and flavor of the Cote d’Or. The vineyard soils contain a high percentage of chalk and limestone, which imparts firm mineral nuances. Steel Chardonnay is vinified with no oak to retain the elegant aromas and clean, fresh character that the Burgundy region is prized for. The wine does not undergo malolactic fermentation and is aged in stainless steel tank to retain its fresh, crisp character.

tasting note

This wine shows high-toned aromas of citrus, mandarin orange, white flower, pear and apple, with flinty minerality. Surprisingly concentrated and balanced for such a young wine, the flavors on the palate are at once delicate, powerful and rich.
