Exclusive import

Happy to have an exclusive on this stunning white Burgundy. Of course Chardonnay is king in these parts and this is a fine example of an understated complex wine.

Beautiful depth of flavour and underlying finesse that provides wonderful length and finish. Yellow plums and candied peel with a touch of lemongrass on the lengthy finish.

Fruit from Mont du Mâconnais, where limestone is prevalent. Once ripe, picking is both by hand and machine. Machine harvesting has the advantage of picking in the early hours of the morning before daylight when the temperature rises; hand picking is gentler and keeps whole bunches intact. Once alcoholic fermentation is complete, wines are left to winter and undergo malolactic fermentation. The winemaker tastes each individual tank (up to 20) to select a very personalised blend for GENETIE 'Les Piliers', combining three essential elements - florals, exotic fruit flavour and the mineral. The final blend is kept on fine lees until bottling.

An extremely versatile wine; Try with meaty white fish, chicken in cream sauce, risotto, fish chowder, a traditional roast chicken with all the trimmings, or even goat's cheese.

Yummy!
