Chardonnay 2022

Since 1979, the first vintage for our Chardonnay, we have chosen to ferment it strictly in stainless steel in order to preserve the fruitfull aromatics of pear green, golden delicious apple and the floral tones. Several decades later this style, ounce rare, it is now become obiquitoes and much appreciated.

Cellar Life

A unique and most challenging growing season, beginning with 8 nights of Spring frosts that reduced the yields. A wet late Spring, a record cold June followed by a very dry period in July, when we almost had to irrigate. Mid-Summer was a rollercoaster of rains followed by sunshine. At last we enjoyed a dry end of September for harvest. All white varietals show great aromatics, very fresh acidity, and medium structure.
