Côte Chalonnaise, Burgundy, France
Domaine de l'Evêché Bourgogne Côte Chalonnaise Blanc is a beautiful white wine gem from this appellation in Burgundy, showing off the natural beauty of the Chardonnay grape. This domaine traces its roots to the end of the 17th century, though vines have been planted here since at least the middle ages. Vincent Joussier purchased the domaine in 1985 and now the Joussier family runs this beautiful domaine of 12.5 hectares in the Cote Chalonnaise.
Domaine de l'Evêché Bourgogne Côte Chalonnaise Blanc is a relative value among white Burgundies. The vineyard is located mid-slope and the soil is clay-limestone with a large amount of small pebbles covering the top soil. This is a floral and fruity Chardonnay that will seduce you with its round elegance and surprise you with its density and complexity. It is well balanced and ready to be enjoyed now and over the next 5-7 years, with good length and complexity on the finish.
