Harvest Note
After a cold and wet winter, spring brought a late flowering (end of June). However the summer was one of the warmest on record, giving very good condition for maturation. We picked the Chardonnay grapes by hand on October 6th, with perfect weather conditions and a vibrant acidity.
Tasting Note
With a clear gold color, this wine expresses a nice aromatic complexity and the nose reveals beautiful white flowers, lemon, citrus peel, hazelnut and fresh almond notes, enhanced by fine oak flavor. The palate is well-balanced between a nice freshness and acidity, and ripeness and concentration of grapes. The finish is pure and mineral.

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.
