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.

Thankfully the chaotic start had no impact on quality of the vintage. Splendid summer conditions followed, bringing ideal conditions for ripening. In the weeks leading up to harvest, the vines benefited from hot, sunny days and cooler nights that allowed for optimum maturity and superb grape quality.
Tasting Note
This wine is very open and intense on the nose, with aromas of white flowers, grapefruit and apricots. 2016 is a rich and well-balanced vintage with a fresh and mineral persistency.
