A creamy, rich chardonnay made from single-plot grapes.
Terroir, production method and ripening: The grapes are hand-picked from a steep 450-meter-high hillside vineyard with vines dating back to the 1920s. If there were premier cru classified farms in Saint-Romain, La Combe Bazin would be one of the favorite candidates. After pressing, the wine settles in a cool place and then ferments spontaneously in oak barrels. The wine matures in barrels for 18 months. 15% of the barrels are new. The wine is not clarified or filtered.
Use: As a companion to roasted veal fillet and polenta.
Description: Somewhat intense scent with a bit of toasted nuttiness and oak aromas. The taste is richly creamy and despite its young age, the wine feels ready to be enjoyed.
