2019 vintage
Harvest Note
The 2020 vintage was quite early, as the growth cycle commenced with a warm period in late winter which was followed by a hot and dry summer. There were a few well-timed rains which moderated the drought conditions and relieved the vines. There were no diseases to contend with and the fruit arrived in a perfectly healthy state. Despite the heat alcohol levels are quite moderate, while acidity was retained. These are wines with lovely balance, a hint of tension, and which are capable of aging.
Tasting Note
With a delicate nose of white fruits and a tender but lively mouth, it is the right reflection of of Vergisson terroir
Food Pairing
Scallop carpaccio, veal tartare, roast chicken, semi-mature goat's cheeses and creamy cow's cheeses.

About the Grape

Though it has a distinctive profile, Chardonnay reflects other factors such as soil composition and vinification technique. Chardonnay is a reliable, hardy and prolific vine whose only real vulnerabilities are frost and uneven development of fruit.
