Francois Carillon, Chardonnay, Bourgogne, France 2018
The grapes for the Bourgogne Chardonnay come from three plots located in Puligny-Montrachet and Meursault. Crunchy with a nice acidity, this brilliant wine offers aromas of lime, pear, and peaches. Following the harvest, the wine is taken directly to ferment in small oak barrels, where it spends nearly a year and undergoes a light bâtonnage. It is blended and bottled about 16 months after harvest.
Golden, luminous color. Rich and fresh aromas of yellow peaches play against a salty mineral backdrop. The palate is full of juicy, delicious fruit with a refreshing finish.
