Winemaker's Notes:

Very bright, vibrant yellow color with aromas of pear, apple and lime custard. The Burgundian winemaking techniques, including alcoholic and malolactic fermentation in barrel with lees stirring and extended aging, contribute a complex bouquet of grilled hazelnuts, butter, honey and gun flint and amplify an already intensely viscous wine. This is an enticingly delicious Chardonnay with complex aromas and flavors balanced by palate cleansing acidity.
