This unoaked Chardonnay combines the minerality of the Mâconnais 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 and malolactic fermentation instead being aged in stainless steel tanks to retain the elegant aromas and clean, fresh character that the Burgundy region is prized for.
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.
