A wine to introduce anyone to the delights of Chardonnay. Rich, ample, generous with pillowed softness. Jasmine, flint, stone fruits and fig. Clear and pure flavours, a dollop of cream to fill out the mid palate and citrus zest, lending line and tang. Absolute bargain. Waters Wine Co
Screwcap. This Chardonnay is drawn from Guffens’ own Tourettes vineyard in the Luberon, a limestone-rich terroir at 400 metres above sea level. Specifically, the fruit is from the Plateau de l’Aigle terroir, a rocky site that is also the source of Tourette’s ‘grand cru’ Tinus Chardonnay. Where Tinus is crafted from free-run juices, here Guffens selects the juice during pressing, keeping only the first pressings to preserve acidity to offset the wine’s natural flesh. This year the wine was fermented in used oak (80%) and aged for eight months on lees in a mix of concrete and used barrel.
