From the northern most vineyard in Burgundy, only 30 miles from Champagne, this 100% Chardonnay from 45-year-old vines is organically and biodynamically farmed, as well as hand harvested (the label represents winemaker Stéphane Moreau’s handcrafted work). Aged 24 months in 1/3 French oak barrels and 2/3 in thermo-regulated stainless steel tanks, this is a very glossy but not heavy wine. Bouquet of orange blossom and apricot on the nose. There is admirable weight and rounded texture in the mouth. Nice white flower and earthy complexity. Fresh and lively with a gentle ripe apple finish.
