Millésime 2018 Premier Cru
Our Two Cents
SEE: Gold and straw yellow
SMELL: Fresh lemon, butter, honeysuckle and thyme followed by lemongrass, candied pineapple and coffee mocha
TASTE: Warm brioche, marshmallow, white florals and tart yeasty notes. Structured and weighty with present acidity and chalky minerality.
PAIR: Enjoy this cuvée with a spread of aged crumbly cheeses, Spanish pimentón almonds, salty meats and seedy crackers. Or drink it with grilled cheese and ripe tomato on sourdough.
The youngest cuvée in our new bundle, Millésime 2018 Premier Cru features chardonnay grapes that were put through their paces. An exceptionally rainy winter, a very mild spring and extreme summer heat, drought and sunshine produced a large quantity of fruit and plenty of top-quality musts for the cellar. These conditions were wholly suited to Jean Luc’s old-school approach of minimal intervention during the fermentation process. He refrains from controlling the temperature and uses old, wooden tanks that allow the wine to breathe.
