Guillon Bourgogne Blanc Chardonnay 2015 Product #31927 (In Stock)
Guillon Bourgogne Blanc Chardonnay 2015 Guillon Bourgogne Blanc Chardonnay 2015

It’s audacious enough to plant Chardonnay right in the middle of the world-famous Pinot Noir vineyard of Gevrey-Chambertin.  But to then make a wine this good from the tiny patches of limestone soil that suit Chardonnay so well…well, that’s just what Jean-Michel Guillon does.

In 2015, the fruit had so much ripeness and intensity that it warranted a full 50% new oak for barrel fermentation and aging.  Already, though, this deep and complex wine has taken up the wood beautifully.  Aromas of golden stone fruit, hazelnut, lemon, fresh butter and mint really soar from the glass.  On the palate, there’s a palate coating richness to the bold flavors of lemon curd, fresh peach and apple, and butter-toasted nut.  The flavors fan out and then snap back into tight focus on a salty-stone, peach, lemon custard and fresh mint finish that sails on and on.  Delicious right now and built to improve for at least 5 years.
