Bourgogne Blanc Mechalots - Sylvain Pataille
100% Chardonnay (12.5% alc.)
This comes from a tiny 0.30ha parcel of 7yo vines planted in deep clay soils with many small stones and was transferred into 7-8yo oak barrels halfway through fermentation. Quite Chablisesque on the nose, it has a beautiful lime flower aroma that opens nicely with aeration. The palate is well balanced with crisp acidity, confit lemon and a saline twang on the finish.
