TASTING NOTE

In the town of Viré, Jean-Marie Chaland’s 40-80 year old parcel of Chardonnay vines grow in a natural bowl which traps sunlight and gives their ripening a boost. No herbicides are used on the vineyard and the grapes are harvested by hand. After pressing, the juice is fermented at a low temperature in stainless steel vats and is aged on its lees for 10 months before being bottled. Bright, ripe orchard fruit with a fine mineral edge adding real finesse to the seamless structure. A hint of oak adds texture rather than obvious flavour.
