Here is a classic interpretation of true Burgundian Chardonnay raised in oak (10% new) for twelve months to produce an easy-to-love wine with a silky texture and toasty aromas, plus hints of vanilla, tropical fruit, and apricot. Taste this beauty from Colin to understand why many people consider Burgundy the pinnacle of Chardonnay and why it is often imitated, but never duplicated.
This charmer diverges slightly from the traditional idea of Chardonnay. With its wispy aromas of mandarin orange, honeysuckle, and beeswax, this northern Italian wine transforms on the palate to showcase Chardonnay’s bright and zesty side. Kante’s vineyards located on the Carso plateau give a unique spin to a familiar grape.
The vines selected for this cuvée have been patiently growing old for the last fifty years in Lavigny, an idyllic and peaceful village just west of the Seille River. It’s one of the saltiest, most savory, and generous in François’s repertoire, so take your time with it and let its story unfold. Louis Pasteur, a native of the Jura and one of the first microbiologists to understand alcoholic fermentation, famously said that fortune favored a prepared mind. Fortune also favors a prepared poulet aux morilles with a great bottle of wine like this one.
