Chardonnay

Our classic Chardonnay ripens on the vine with potential alcohol in the familiar and food-friendly range of Burgundy, 12.5 to 13 percent. Since 1979 our approach in the winery has captured the brilliant varietal essence of the wine, without resort to oak or to malolactic fermentation, resulting in immediate approachability and the broadest applicability in dining.
