Old vine Chardonnay that really delivers. Made uusing organic and biodynamic principles without adding sulphur. The wine has a complex, lively nose which is rich in smoky, mineral, citrus and white flower notes. Ageing in old barrels gives it a buttery appearance and a good aromatic length.

Notes on the producer

Philippe Chatillon was estate manager at the much celebrated Arbois winey of Domaine de La Pinte for close to 18 years. It was then, in 2013, that he decided he wanted to create his own, finding and buying a hillside plot of Savagnin in Passenans with which to work. Soon he added plots with of Melon a Queue Rouge, Pinot Noir, Tousseau and Chardonnay and, exchanging his original Savagnin plot for another worked only biodynamically, he is on his way! He works his vineyard by hand, without the use of any chemical fertilizer what so-ever. The soils are aided by biodynamic preparations and in the cellar he uses old oak, spontaneous fermentations and bottles without fining or filtration. Furthermore he works in bio-harmony, using sounds vibrations from harps to aid in the wines balance.
