The wine has a lovely shimmer and is of a pretty golden color with green reflections. The rich and complex nose is characterized by pleasant and subtle floral and mineral aromas. It has a wonderful, fat structure in the mouth with minerality and the charming typical chardonnay aromas of butter, brioche and meadow mushrooms. It is a harmonious wine that is not only fine and elegant but also has an excellent aromatic persistence. Best drunk cold with oysters, shellfish, fish and goats cheese
Burgundy, or Bourgogne, is the home of 3 distinctive wines: silky Pinot Noir, intense Chardonnay, and fruity Gamay (Beaujolais). Though one-third the size of Bordeaux, it is far more complex. As a result of the ancient inheritance laws requiring subdivision of land, each vineyard has many owners. So in addition to knowing vineyards, wine buyers have to know the owners or their négoçiants (agents).
Burgundy is composed of 6 main regions: Chablis, Côte de Nuits, Côte de Beaune, Côte Chalonnaise, Beaujolais, and Mâconnais. Côte de Nuits and Côte de Beaune are the northern and southern parts of Côte d’Or — the Golden Slope — a region whose cool climate and elevated land make it one of the best home for the volatile Pinot Noir and complex Chardonnay.
