Chardonnay Clos de la Chapelle Bourgogne Blanc 2019

Bourgogne
  • 75cl bottle

An aromatic and fruity Chardonnay - fleshy and refreshing with an excellent finish. Beautiful with shellfish dishes.

Vineyards

The Domaine Romy is a property of 30 hectares in the area of the 'Pierres Dorées' in the south of Beaujolais. This Chardonnay is made from vines located on Morancé hill.

Vintage

2019 was a ‘mixed bag’ vintage with an overall loss of 25% in Beaujolais against full crop volumes. Beaujolais, Beaujolais-Villages and Moulin à Vent suffered from widespread frost in April. This was followed by bad flowering due to June’s record temperature variation from 3 to 42°C. On 18th of August southern Beaujolais was hit by a hail storm, causing up to 50% loss of crop – Beaujolais-Villages/ Coteaux Bourguignonnes appellations were affected the most. August was also wet, but dry and fresh conditions in September allowed the grapes to slowly ripen. Harvest began on 9th September.

Winemaking

The grapes are pressed and a controlled, cool fermentation takes place immediately in stainless steel tanks. Malolactic fermentation is only partial to retain some of the crispness. Bottling happens after 8 months.

Enjoy with:

  • Grilled and Roasted White Meats
  • Fish/Shellfish
  • Pizza/Pasta
  • Salads and Picnics
  • Mild Creamy Cheeses
  • Mature Strong Cheeses
Try it as an aperitif or on fish and shellfish dishes.
