Maison Jaffelin Chardonnay Vin de France 2017
Chardonnay, the best known variety in the world, shares its name with a tiny village in Burgundy. It is the only variety used in the best dry White Wines in this region. This grape variety is also used in Champagne. The grapes are from the south (for richness) of France and the south of Burgundy (for acidity). This White Wine was raised solely in steel tanks to better express its fruitiness.
The smallest of the major estates in Burgundy is one of the few that still makes Wine in the historical centre of Beaune in oval wooden vats. The Jaffelin estate presses its grapes in a vertical wine-press; a rare, traditional technique using handmade vats.
