Vignerons de Buxy Bourgogne Cote Chalonnoise Chardonnay 2018
|Region||France, Burgundy, Cote Chalonnaise|
|Brand||Vignerons de Buxy|
With a fine pale golden hue, the nose is very fruity (grapefruit, lemon, citrus), with hints of honeysuckle and hawthorn. This wine has a clean, lively bite, with an aftertaste that is reminiscent of aniseed. A fine expression of Chardonnay. An excellent starter wine that pairs well with fish tarts, seafood gratins, or grilled or marinated vegetables. More generally, it is excellent with escargot, white meats, and goat cheese.
The vines are located between Buxy and Saint Gengoux le National and are generally at the top of the hills. The soils are shallow, sometimes even in the bedrock. The grounds are very stony.
Its grapes come from clay-limestone soils predominantly limestone from the Côte Chalonnaise. The slopes are gentle and oriented East to South East.
The vinification takes place to start in stainless steel vats, then in barrels and oak casks. The duration of aging in wood varies according to the vintage.
