Francois de Nicolay, Chardonnay “Chardoc”, Bourgogne, France (2020)
Supposedly "humble" Burgundian Chardonnay, in reality, this is dynamite wine. Unfined and unfiltered, the wine has a dense texture with pronounced notes of yellow orchard fruit, candied lemon and fresh cream. Herbal, tense and a long dry finish.
Maison Francois de Nicolay purchases only organic and biodynamic fruit and vinifies in their cellar in Savigny-les-Beaune without the use of selected yeasts, new oak, pumpovers or filtration of any kind.
