2016 Cave d'Aze Bourgogne Chardonnay

2016 Cave d'Aze Bourgogne Chardonnay

White Burgundy with a real sense of identity - this Chardonnay has it made.

Subtle mealy oak, integrated oak and a clever balance of acidity and fruit. It all adds up to a Chardonnay that trades in the minerality of Burgundy, but with a modern sensibility.

Classy white wine at every corner.

How's it taste?

A clear, deep yellow colour with gold highlights. Elegant and powerful aromas with grilled and vanilla notes. Some exotic fruit flavours after aeration. Well-bodied offering a good vinosity. Well-integrated tannins ensure a good balance and give a lovely and vibrant long finish.

How was it made?

Fermented and aged in oak barrels, lees stirring, minimum of 12 months, racking and bottling in springtime.

Who made it?

Located in the heart of Maconnais vineyard, the cellar of Azé, founded in 1927, follows the authentic Burgundy tradition. Winemaker Denis Charlot aims for the perfect balance between modernity and traditional winemaking practices in a cellar that dates back over 90 years. Gaston Roupnel, brilliant historian and a bright spirit of Burgundy, would say about these wines that they "allow the wine-loving world to drink the health of France !”
