Outstanding Chardonnay. Subtly fruity, savoury and intense throughout.

 

Winemakers Tomoko Kuriyama and Guillaume Bott met working at the fabulous Domaine Simon Bize, and now produce an outstanding negociant range from vineyards around Burgundy. The Bourgogne Blanc Chardonnay is a glorious drink. It's curvaceous, honeyed and toasty in style yet framed by a fine edge of minerality. It's brilliant drinking.

Grape/s: Chardonnay

Production Method: Sustainable. Classic Burgundian, some barrel fermentation and maturation.

Variety: Chardonnay

Profile: Commonly referred to as the winemakers grape owing to both its versatility and ease of manipulation in the winery. Chardonnay will range widely in character depending on its region of origin as well as winemaking style. One the lighter end of the spectrum, generally from cooler regions, it will display crisp, somewhat tart acidity alongside citrus and orchard fruit character and mineral texture. Moving to warmer climates gradually produces a more ripe stone and tropical fruit character. Winemaking, particularly the use of oak and batonnage (lees stirring) produces a richer, creamier texture and flavours of toast, butter and vanilla spice.

Classic Regions: Chablis, Cote d'Or, Maconnais, Champagne (France), Yarra Valley, Tasmania, Margaret River (Australia), Canterbury (New Zealand), Walker Bay (South Africa)
