Tasting Notes

Just released, this young Chardonnay surprises with its high-toned aromas of pears, smoke, and yellow plums. A firm, citrus acidity streaks through, finishing soft and clean, with lingering notes of marzipan. Domaine d'Ardhuy works with a deep respect for terroir, focusing on cultivating living soils in their vineyards, which stretch from Puligny-Montrachet to Gevrey-Chambertin.

Staff Pick Notes

This textural marvel of a wine offers a wonderful full-bodied quaff, yet is restrained by a lovely citrus-tinged acidity. The grapes used in this Chardonnay and Pinot Blanc blend come from over 30 year-old vines carefully tended to with minimal intervention, low yields, and delicate techniques to preserve fresh fruit flavors. Barrel fermentation in 15% new oak and an extended aging on the lees contribute to the rich, silky texture of this wine. Aromas of citrus, flowers, pear, stone fruits, with a hint of smoke make for a great sensory experience. Pair with a creamy cheese, lighter fish, chicken with mushrooms and cream for a fantastic meal. One of my favorite Burgundian bargains!
