Catherine Delaunay wanted "Les Jamelles Chardonnay" to
demonstrate her Burgundian know-how. She obtains a complex, elegant
wine that displays freshness and fruit together with delicate woody
aromas and a long, rich, harmonious finish.
Our Chardonnay is a fresh and fruity wine with lots of richness, in
the Burgundian style. It is clear and limpid, with a lovely golden
colour, aromas of apricots, pears and green apples, notes of
walnuts and hazelnuts, a hint of white flowers, and a slightly
buttery finish. It has subtle and well-integrated notes of vanilla
oak, combined with a slightly lemony note.
