2014 Bourgogne Blanc, Chanson Pere Et Fils, Burgundy, France
Floral fragrances and citrus fruit notes with a hint of minerality. Well-structured with good acidity and a refreshing persistent aftertaste.
This Burgundy négociant and grower was founded during the reign of Louis XVth in 1750 and has been owned since 1999 by the world-renowned Bollinger family.
The winemaking takes place at a modern facility on the outskirts of town but oak ageing then takes place in a bastion containing up to 3,000 barriques in the north-west corner of the medieval walls of Beaune itself, where the company is headquartered.
"A rich and juicy style of white Burgundy that has drive and tension from the acidity and an exuberance of fruit. A charming wine to drink now." Decanter Magazine.
