Description

This is a special cuvée of around 4,000 bottles per year, made from two contiguous parcels on steep slopes in Fleys. One parcel is sunnier, the other cooler. The marriage is remarkably harmonious, yielding a wine with magical density and weight, yet underpinned by a searing acidity. This is definitely one to cellar.

Neal Martin, Vinous88-91/100

I tasted two components of what will make up the Part des Anges bottling. The first had a touch of reduction from a late malolactic. A denser and warmer finish than the regular Chablis, but all the fruit is white, making a dense block. Another, from Fontecote, is backward, discreet, very classy, with exceptional length. Exemplary.

Drink 2025 - 2029

Chardonnay

Chardonnay

Chardonnay is often seen as the king of white wine grapes and one of the most widely planted in the world It is suited to a wide variety of soils, though it excels in soils with a high limestone content as found in Champagne, Chablis, and the Côte D`Or.

Burgundy is Chardonnay's spiritual home and the best White Burgundies are dry, rich, honeyed wines with marvellous poise, elegance and balance. They are unquestionably the finest dry white wines in the world. Chardonnay plays a crucial role in the Champagne blend, providing structure and finesse, and is the sole grape in Blanc de Blancs.

It is quantitatively important in California and Australia, is widely planted in Chile and South Africa, and is the second most widely planted grape in New Zealand. In warm climates Chardonnay has a tendency to develop very high sugar levels during the final stages of ripening and this can occur at the expense of acidity. Late picking is a common problem and can result in blowsy and flabby wines that lack structure and definition.

Recently in the New World, we have seen a move towards more elegant, better- balanced and less oak-driven Chardonnays, and this is to be welcomed.
