Wine made from grapes grown without synthetic pesticides, fertilizers and herbicides in the vineyard.


Tasting Notes

This comes from a 2.5 ha parcel of younger vines. The fruit was hand-harvested, fermented with indigenous yeasts and then aged in steel vats for 9 months before bottling. A fresh white Burgundy worth your while and just delicious with oysters - fried or fresh.

Staff Pick Notes

I love trying fine winemakers’ "entry-level” wines. They have the benefit of high-quality care and expertise often with the bonus of a more affordable price point.

It managed a level of depth not always found at this price. It was fresh and lively and came from just 2.5 acres of young vines that are harvested by hand, fermented indigenously, and aged in steel for 9 months. I paired it with poached halibut with lemon and butter, and found its crisp minerality to be a delightful complement to the delicate flavors of the dish.

During a huge popularity surge beginning in the late 1980s, Chardonnay plantings have increased dramatically -- not only in California's wine country, with which the variety is nearly synonymous, but also in Burgundy (its original, Old World home) and just about everywhere else in the winemaking...
