Grape Varieties: 100% Chardonnay
Region: Côte de Beaune, Burgundy
Closure: Agglomerated Cork
In a traditional Burgundian style, the must was fermented in oak barrels. The wine was lees-aged with 12 months in oak, of which 20% was new. Concentrated yellow peach and apricot perfumes are supported by vanilla nuances from delicate oak ageing.
This wine is gold in colour with a very expressive nose. Notes of yellow peach, apricot and citrus fruits are supported by vanilla nuances from judicious oak ageing. The elegant palate has good concentration and medium body. Ripe fruit, well-balanced oak and bright acidity highlight the complexity of the wine.
2018 began with a warm spring and budburst in early April. The entire vintage continued ahead of schedule, with flowering in mid-June followed by a rapid fruit set. Ripening continued at a good pace, with alternating warm temperatures and rainfall during August. The harvest began at the end of August, around two weeks earlier than average. The grapes were in exceptional health and required virtually no sorting. Winemakers across Burgundy were very enthusiastic about the 2018 crop, with the fruit in peak health and the region back to producing good quantities of quality fruit, in comparison to the difficult harvests of recent years.
