Producer: Domaine Marc MoreyGrape Varieties: 100% ChardonnayOptimum Drinking: Within 8 yearsWine Style: Full bodied complex whiteAlcohol by Volume: 13%Closure: Natural CorkCountry: France
Hand harvested Chardonnay from vines planted in 1990. The parcel is just over a third of a hectare with limestone soil and marl peppered with sharp stones, the 'dents de chien'. Fermented in oak barrels, 25% new, the malo follows naturally in the spring and the wine stays on its lees until bottling in June. The 2018 vintage gave ideal growing conditions, with a cold winter followed by warm spring with just enough rain, leading into a hot and dry summer.
Reflecting the warmth of the 2018 vintage, this is already approachable and complete with forward ripe fruit and a complex, full palate balanced with some saline freshness on the finish.
