Why you'll love me

Get ready for a sensory voyage with this Chardonnay from Blacé, France. This small 5.5ha vineyard is perched 300M above sea level with an east-facing aspect. The high limestone of the soil content gives this wine a unique minerality. The grapes are slow pressed and fermentated in fibreglass tanks. The wine is then aged for nine months in amphora and bottle with no fining or filtering, and zero added sulfites. Small production of 759 bottles.

The impact of the time spent in the amphora can be felt on the wine. Aromas of apple, apricot, raw pastry, amphora, and a slight salinity. Flavours of unripe mango and papaya on the palate – a subtle and restrained wine. Best to open the wine to let it breathe before drinking to let the flavours come alive.
