Bourgogne Blanc Chardonnay
Domaine de la Belouse
Bourgogne Blanc AOC
The Domaine de la Belouse estate was settled in 1970 with just one hectare of wine crop around La Roche Vineuse and Saint Vérand (South Burgundy). Since then, the vineyard has progressively grown to the current 38 hectares.
In 1999, the winery was built with new temperature-controlled oak barrels and stainless steel vats. Two pneumatic presses and a bottling line have completed the fittings. In 2008, a new wine cellar and an oak barrel cellar were created to increase the overall storage capacity.WINEMAKING & VINTAGE NOTES
Vines are planted on chalky clay soils with stones with ideal sun exposure. Yields are kept low to enhance concentration. Average age of the vines is 35-40 years. A slow, cool temperature vinification takes palce in order to preserve fruit flavors and aromas. Fermentation is in stainless steel tanks with controlled temperatures. The wine is aged for six months on the lees in stainless-steel tanks.TASTING NOTES
Pale bright gold. Rich, fruity, fresh and elegant. The mineral palate is complemented by notes of lemon. Excellent with grilled fish or white meat.
