100% Premier Cru Chardonnay from the 'Les Combes au Sud plot in the Southwest pocket of the Domaine Derain estate in Saint-Aubin, Burgundy. Grown on clay and limestone soils, the wine juxtaposes richness with finesse, body with acidity, and mouthfeel with tension. Ever so slightly richer than En Remilly, but less oxidative than Les Murgers des Dents de Chien.
Organically farmed, hand harvested, whole bunch pressed, fermented and matured in aged French oak barriques for 12 months before being bottled unfiltered and unfined.
