Country: France, Champagne
Grape Varieties: Chardonnay 100%
Appearance: Its luminous golden-yellow colour offers a radiant, sparkling finish that gives way to a fine, persistent bubble.

Palate: A captivatingly tense tactile sensation is dominated by a gritty, seductive spirit (Menton lemon, blood orange and hazelnut powder). Radiant complexity pairs with a characteristic touch of salinity of the great terroirs of the Côte des Blancs. A delicate finish with hints of bergamot and almond milk.

Aroma: Its sensory development leans on distinguished aromatic floral notes, which speaks to its great minerality of fruits (jasmine, fresh pineapple and buttery brioche). Its sensual, refined flavour is based on white pome fruit (tart pear, medlar). It is the perfect expression of subtly disciplined Chardonnay, meticulously matured on the lees.

Tasting: This single-varietal & Grand Cru terroir offers an outstandingly delicious concentration of flavours. Served at cellar temperature (10/12° C), culinary pairings can include sea bass cooked in a salt crust with thyme or scallop yakitori.

The Grape
Chardonnay is the "Big Daddy" of white wine grapes and one of the most widely planted in the world. It is suited to a wide variety of soils, though it excels in soils with a high limestone content as found in Champagne, Chablis, and the Côte D`Or.

Burgundy is Chardonnay`s spiritual home and the best White Burgundies are dry, rich, honeyed wines with marvelous poise, elegance and balance. They are unquestionably the finest dry white wines in the world. Chardonnay plays a crucial role in the Champagne blend, providing structure and finesse, and is the sole grape in Blanc de Blancs.

It is quantitatively important in California and Australia, is widely planted in Chile and South Africa, and is the second most widely planted grape in New Zealand. In warm climates Chardonnay has a tendency to develop very high sugar levels during the final stages of ripening and this can occur at the expense of acidity. Late picking is a common problem and can result in blowsy and flabby wines that lack structure and definition.

Recently in the New World, we have seen a move towards more elegant, better- balanced and less oak-driven Chardonnays, and this is to be welcomed.
