00 WINES VGW CHARDONNAY
Ripe peach, apricot and white flower aromas. The palate is fleshy and beguiling, with salty definition opening onto orange rind and bitter almonds. Generous upfront, then super focused from the mid-palate onwards, with bright acids and tangy citrus flavours lingering. Fine grippy extract on the finish. Shapely and dramatic.
Crushed by foot, with overnight skin contact followed by a long pressing, then straight into barrel for 12 months on lees, with no bâtonnage. 6 months on fine lees in stainless steel vats before bottling. 20% new French oak, the barrels coming from the Damy, Cadus and Mercurey cooperages.
