Description

Elegance and finesse from Southern Burgundy.

TASTING NOTES
Immediately appealing with good depth of flavour and underlying
finesse that provides wonderful length and unfolding flavours - think
of freshly cut hay and meadowsweet for the nose, crunchy greengages
for the palate, and some candied peel / lemongrass for the final notes.

IN THE VINEYARD
Plots within the Mâcon-Charnay-lès-Mâcon appellation lie on the
higher slopes of the Mont du Mâconnais, where soils are varied but
limestone is prevalent. Here Chardonnay ripens under a Continental
climate (typically cold winters followed by warm springs and almost
Mediterranean sun in the summer). Once ripe, picking is both by
hand and machine. Machine harvesting has the advantage of picking
in the early hours of the morning before daylight when the
temperature rises; hand picking is gentler and keeps whole bunches
intact.

IN THE WINERY
After pressing and static settling the must is cooled to around 12°C to
ensure a controlled fermentation. Once alcoholic fermentation is
complete, wines are left to winter and undergo malolactic fermentation.
With enviable priority access to the cellar in Mâcon-Charnay, Samantha
tastes each individual tank (up to 20) to select a very personalised blend
for GENETIE 'Les Piliers', combining three essential elements - the florals, the exotic and the mineral. The final blend is kept on fine lees until bottling, combining the warmth of southern Burgundy with the elegance and finesse of the special terroir of Mâcon-Charnay-lès-Mâcon.

FOOD RECOMMENDATIONS
An extremely versatile wine that can be enjoyed alone or with food -
delicious alongside grilled fish (locally we would use zander), chicken
in cream sauce (poulet à la crème), asparagus & mushroom risotto,
fish chowder, a traditional roast chicken with all the trimmings, or
even a cheese platter - particularly goat's cheese.
