Product information

Description

[2015 release - no vintage labelling allowed!] Grapes are hand-picked and manually sorted, then a very gentle seven hour press, to allow the juice to remain in contact with the skins to optimise flavor. Fermentation in a “large” oak barrel with natural yeasts which Arnaud firmly believes gives more rounded, complex and richer wines. Maturation on the fine lees for ten months. A delightful, complex glass of Chardonnay – the fruit is a touch more exotic than 'classic' Burgundy, but with a pure, dry, mineral spine which definitely says Alsace.
Just a hint of pear peel rises from the nose. The palate is rich with glowing pear fruit, even a little warm, but utterly precise. All this is met with a vein of lemon freshness that brightens all the apples and pears. There is concentration and juiciness, concentration and purity. There is something very fluid and utterly moreish about this. 92pts 'Excellent - Highly Recommended - Wine Enthusiast, Jan .17
