Tasting Notes

This Chardonnay has golden nuances in the glass. There is a nice complexity on the nose with aromas of ripe yellow fruits, citrus and white rose. This wine is clean and fresh on the palate with good acidity. The finish is long and lively.

Producer details

Under the keen eye of renowned viniculteur Grégory Patriat considered one of the best viticulturalists/winemakers of his generation in Burgundy. He spends a great deal of his time in the vineyards, paying his growers by the hectare in order to ensure low yields. He also prefers to work with organic growers, as he finds they produce better fruit. Unlike other Burgundian négociants, Grégory specialises in making wines from 'lieu-dits' or tiny plots of vines, something which accounts for the limited production of most of his wines.

In the vineyard

This wine is from Igé, one of the Mâconnais' top villages. Château London is the specific vineyard or 'lieu-dit' of the grapes. Vine age is approximately 20 years and the yield is 7,000 vines per hectare. Soils are stony and clay, with a high proportion of chalk. The grape is a clone of Chardonnay, Chardonnay-Muscaté, which gives the typical structure, poise and freshness of Chardonnay together the aromatic expression of Muscat.

In the winery

The grapes were harvested manually into 20 kilogram crates, then whole bunch pressed for 2.5 hours, before the juice was transferred to 450 litre oak barrels. Indigenous yeasts were used for a long fermentation without racking or lees stirring. The wine was then aged in 30% new French oak barrels for 12 months without being racked. The barrels used are toasted at low temperatures to impart a subtle, delicate flavour to the final wine.
