Chardonnay Bourgogne is vinified and blended from 100% Chardonnay grapes selected from quality wine growers in the Mâconnais and Côte Chalonnaise. This wine is a “step-up” from the traditional Mâcon wines and is aged in stainless steel for 12 months.

Harvest Note
Winter 2019-20 was, once again, extremely mild. Full flowering took place towards the end of May and the beginning of June, and the berries swelled rapidly despite the general lack of rainfall. The vines were able to get sufficient water from the reserves laid down in the soil during the winter months. The grapes were very healthy, and had to finish ripening without further rainfall. Harvesting started on August 19. In terms of yields the whites were a little bit more generous than the reds, even given that the grapes gave slight more juice than usual.
Tasting Note
Expressive nose of green apple, pear and crushed stone with floral notes. The palate is full of fresh, citrus fruits with slight tropical notes of apricots and pineapples.
Food Pairing
Pairs well with most white fish and poultry.

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.
