Winemaker's Notes

The Domaine des Terres Dorees Beaujolais Blanc is 100% Chardonnay from 80+ year old vines. Fermented and aged in stainless steel, the wine offers clean, bright green fruit flavors and crisp acidity.

Critical Acclaim

"That Brun’s 2011 Beaujolais Chardonnay Classic offers charm, complexity, and stupendous value will come as little surprise to veteran readers of my reports. Still, this might be his best yet. This is a wine of which you can scarcely have too much of around your house. Pristine apple and lemon – joined rather unexpectedly by honeydew melon and apricot – are mingled with liquid honeysuckle, jasmine and narcissus as well as saliva-inducing oyster liqueur and sweet-saline shrimp shell reduction. Bright, buoyant, and truly rivetingly nuanced and persistent, this beauty will perform memorably through at least 2016."

Those are usually the Cru Beaujolais and are...
