Bourgogne Les Ursulines

Chardonnay
Description

This ‘vast' appellation brings together four great regions; Yonne to the north, with its fresh, mineral wines, followed by the Côte d'Or, with its rounder, deeper whites, the Côte Chalonnaise with its pleasant wines, and lastly the Mâcon region to the south, with a range of styles varying with the individual soil and exposure. Soils are mostly limestone-clay.

Harvest date: from 10 to 15 September 2019. The grapes were handpicked and collected in 20-kg perforated crates. At the winery: The whole bunches of grapes were gently pressed for 2½ hours. The temperature of the must was brought down to 12°C then was immediately transferred to barrels with no settling to preserve a maximum of lees. Very long fermentation using indigenous yeasts.
