Bourgogne Chardonnay ‘Couvent des Jacobins’ 2020
A perfect introduction to the delights and complexity of real white Burgundy, this is mainly Côte d'Or fruit together with some Mâconnais. Fresh with lovely weight, delicate creaminess and judicious oak making this a beautifully balanced dry white.
A blend of grapes from the vineyards of the Côte d'Or and Mâconnais.
A vintage of excellent quality, which started early thanks to a warm spring and early summer, with some very hot whether in July and August. Pinot Noir in particular had small berries, but beautifully concentrated and Chardonnay managed to hold its acidity.
Part of the blend is vinified in aged oak barrels while the other part of the blend is aged and vinified in stainless steel tanks.
