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
Along with a lovely pale color, this wine has an expressive nose of medium intensity green apple, pear and crushed stone with floral notes. The palate brings forth bright, fresh, citrus fruits with slight tropical notes of apricots and pineapples. Expect balanced, fesh acidity and stony minerality that stems from its sunny southern birthplace.

About the Grape

Chardonnay
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.
