A novelty from the producer from the village of Igé, an intense Chardonnay produced for the first time in 2019.
Terroir, production method and maturation: The vines used for the wine grow on rich limestone soil in the village of Igé. The sheds lead east at a 20% angle and are located 220 meters above sea level. The vines are 20-30 years old and the planting density is 7500 vines/ha. The grapes are picked by hand. The wine ferments spontaneously and matures 80% in steel tanks and 20% in 228-liter French oak barrels for 11 months. Malolactic fermentation is allowed. The wine is not clarified. During bottling, 50 mg/l of sulfur dioxide is added to the wine.
Use: As a companion to carved whiting and fennel.
Description: Rich and nutty aroma with intense fruitiness. The taste is dry and broad, but refreshed by noticeable acidity.
