Bourgogne Blanc 2017

Region: France / Burgundy
Grapes: 100% Chardonnay

Louis Jadot Chardonnay is vinified and blended from 100% Chardonnay grapes selected from quality growers in the Côte d'Or and the Côte Mâconnais. This wine is classified “Bourgogne Blanc” in appellation, but a proportion of superior village-level wines is added to optimize the quality of the final blend. Made in a more full-bodied and structured style than Jadot’s Chardonnay Bourgogne, this wine is partially fermented and aged in oak casks for about 8 months to add a rich, round character.

harvest note

The 2017 vintage for Burgundy was strong, however, there were some challenges. Vines flowered late and were affected by frost resulting in yields below the regional average. Despite that, the grapes were in a perfect state of health fostered by increased levels of rain in August and by the harvest in early September. They were picked when at excellent ripeness levels.

tasting note

With fresh floral aromas, this wine is elegant with rich fruit on the palate. This is one of the purest expressions of Chardonnay in Burgundy.
