A tense and mineral Chardonnay that is completely different from any expression we've had before! Flinty and reductive, with tonnes of citrus, dried herbs, chalkiness and humming with personality. A wine that ties together mountain rusticity with a long-lasting texture and firm acidity.

REGION France > Bugey > Albarine Valley
GRAPE(S) Chardonnay
FORMAT 750ml Bottle
ABV 12%
FEATURES Low Intervention, Biodynamic, Natural, Vegan-Friendly

100% Chardonnay, 20-year-old vines on a plot of very stony limestone scree on gray marl, facing south - south-west on a 20 to 35% slope. 

Vinification with native yeasts and ageed 12 months in sandstone jars, Burgundy barrels and used demi-muids. 

Luc Bauer is deeply committed to biodynamics and farming. Before settling in Bugey he worked with the likes of Domaine de la Soufrandière (Bret Brothers), Philippe Jambon in Beaujolais as well as in Canada.

The estate of Grangeons de l’Albarine consists of nearly 2.5 ha of vineyards spread over several steeply sloped and rocky sites. Luc employs biodynamic principles to his vineyards and hopes to certify over the next few seasons. In the cellar Luc’s desire is to produce wines that speak of the terroir of Bugey.
