Bourgogne Grand Ordinaire Chardonnay
"A proportion of the grapes come from a small local area known as “Les Graviers” in the Morey Saint Denis district, the rest come from an area known as “Les Vaux” in Santenay. This dual origin - Côte de Nuits and Côte de Beaune – give this “appellation” an interesting level of complexity, while remaining anchored in the heart of Burgundy, and close to its great “terroirs”. Pale golden yellow colour. Lively and open on the nose, expressing pineapple and fresh almond. On the palate: the toasted notes from the wood combine with the exotic aromas and give up a beautiful palate of aromas. The ensemble results in an attractive, very typically Burgundy with a structure and high level of aromatic complexity for this “appellation”."

If understated at first, it opens into a classic Burgundian Chardonnay with delicate chiselled fruit, lightly toasty, nutty oak and mineral length. If you're eating new season's asparagus doused in melted butter or mayonnaise, this is your organic wine' May 2015 (2011 vintage)
