2016 PASCAL CLEMENT BOURGOGNE CHARDONNAY
This delicious Burgundy value comes from organically vineyards on the east-facing alluvial plains of the Côte de Beaune where the soils are primarily limestone marl. It was aged for ten month in French oak and has everything you want in a white Burg at this price: unctuous Meyer lemon aromas and flavors with nutty and creamy undertones,accented by vanilla, wildflower, and flinty minerals; it's round and full with great texture and balance, and a surprisingly long finish. A universally pleasing Chardonnay with the elegance and acidity that Burgundy fans will appreciate as well along with the richness and spice that California Chard drinkers love.
About: Pascal Clement was born in the village of Savigny-les-Beaune to a family of growers, where his father founded the Maison in 1950. After over 20 years as a grower and winemaker in the region – including his time at legendary Domaine Coche-Dury in Meursault - he launched his own micro-négoçiant project in 2012. The wines live in a stunning building built in 1850 with a splendid arched cellar, housing 200 barrels. Pascal works with friends across several appellations, personally selecting and tending the plots he chooses to work with.
Running a thin line from Auxerre in the north to Lyon in the south, the vineyards of Burgundy are revered, idolized and worshipped, especially those that fall in the Côte d’Or, or “Golden Slopes.” There are thousands of small-scale growers, often with only tiny parcels of land - in some cases mere rows - which means most Burgundy producers operate as négociants out of neccessity. Wines are classified from regional appellation (AC Bourgogne) up through Premier Cru and Grand Cru vineyards. (Importer)
