Taste Note
Half of Axel’s Chardonnay plot was eaten by wild boars so this year he supplemented with Clairette from his friend Tom, but is none the lesser for it. The Chardonnay was macerated for 10 days in whole bunches, and after pressing, the juice was combined with the Clairette juice, then aged in tank for 9 months. A little more open than the previous vintage with a palate of stone fruit and wild herbs. A wonderful vintage for this cuvée. Words by Beattie& Roberts
