Domaine Chene Macon-Villages
100% Chardonnay from the famed Burgundy region of France. After three hours of pre-maceration and skin-contact, the grapes are quickly pressed in a state of the art bladder press, in order to extract all the fruit and aromas while avoiding any bitterness. Two-thirds of the juice ferments in temperature controlled, stainless steel cuves, the balance in oak casks. The wine is bottled after the malolactic fermentation finishes in the late spring. It is released for sale after four months of bottle age.
The Domaine de Chene Colombe Macon Villages is a text book example: a lively bouquet of green apples and flowers (acacia is notable) and good, crisp persistent Chardonnay fruit that sends a wake up call to the senses. It is the perfect all-purpose white wine, served chilled but not ice-cold. This Chardonnay goes particularly well with lighter fish and fowl dishes, shrimp and crab, cold meats, and is also a perfect aperitif.
