GRAPE VARIETAL(S)
Chardonnay
100% Shar-do-NAY
Chardonnay may be the most versatile white wine grape, often seen as a blank canvas. It displays various flavors and aromas depending on where it is grown and more specifically, how it is made. It can range in Palate Character from Bright & Crisp to Rich & Full depending on the climate. It is also particularly malleable and highly affected by winemaking choices like as malolactic fermentation, lees stirring, barrel fermentation and ageing practices.

Dominique Lafon’s influence is apparent in these high-altitude, organically certified chardonnays that are harvested by hand and vinified using native yeasts. 

These wines showcase the nuance of the terroir with crisp acidity of distinct citrus and mineral underpinnings.
