Domaine D‘Ardhuy Corton Charlemagne Grand Cru

Varietal Composition

Chardonnay

Fermentation Method

The grapes are crushed whole and the resulting must left to settle for 24 hours. The clear must is then fermented in oak barrels, of which are new oak. The barrels are selected with a light toasting and the origins of oak with little flavour, in order to keep to the finish wine, the maximum natural and typical minerality. The wine then matures on lees for 12 months. The wine is bottled with no fining and after plate and frame filtering.

Tasting Notes

This wine is exceptionally rich and concentrated, but it combines harmoniously its creamy power with the freshness and minerality typical of Corton-Charlemagne.
The length on the palate is more impressive than the exuberance and requires several years of cellaring to reveal its full potential. A good vintage will age for 15 to 20 years.
