Our opinion on this wine
Chardonnay - Combernand, La Cluse des Peintres - 2018 - Les Grangeons de l'Albarine
Pretty nose of white fruits marked with chardonnay, hints of sweet vanilla with a hint of menthol. The mouth is fluid, pleasant. To be drunk now and in a few years' time on a mineral that should take up more space. Bravo ! To be opened in advance.
Plot on rolled pebbles. Working in bio and biodynamics since 2014. Oriented to the east. Flat 350m of altitude. Vines 50 years old.
Pressing whole bunches. Vinification-ageing in vats for 18 months. Dry wine malo made Unfiltered. 1.5 g/hl of sulphur at bottling.
