Céline & Frédéric Gueguen practice low intervention techniques to get the most from their Chardonnay grapes. They use natural yeasts and the wine completes malolatic fermentation and spends 12 months on its fine lees, adding a weightiness to the palate.

It is well-balanced and slightly racy. There are notes of lemon, quince and white flowers. There is a steely minerality, as you;d expect from good Chablis, with a hint of almond.

The palate is fruity, well-balanced and silky. In the mouth this wine expresses notes of ripe peach, apricot and slight touches of quince, ripe pear a hint of lemon, and a touch of clementine. Good length.

Sushi, sashimi, scallop carpaccio or a seafood platter would all be excellent food pairings.

Chardonnay

One of the world’s most popular grapes, Chardonnay is made in a wide range of styles from lean, sparkling Blanc de Blancs to rich, creamy white wines aged in oak.

Depending on how ripe the grapes get, the flavour ranges from crisp, clean citrus and green apple, to ripe peaches and tropical fruit. Notable Chardonnays can be found in France, California, Australia, England, and beyond.
