Domaine d'Edouard Bourgogne Chardonnay
"Édouard has worked in Burgundy for many years working for some of the best growers in the region (The De Moors, Thomas Pico, Claire Naudin and others). In 2011 he decided to follow his dream of making wine and farming his own fruit. Now he farms 13.5 hectares of vines in the Cote d’Auxerre, a small northern Burgundian region very close to Chablis, which until Phylloxera was a very famous and productive part of Burgundy. Today it represents only a small fraction of wine produced in the region, but the level of quality can be extraordinary, especially considering rising global temperatures and potential to ripen fruit in the more northern French wine regions.
Édouard farms Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Gamay, Aligoté and Cesar, an old Burgundian variety grown only in this area. His vineyards were first planted in the 1960s giving Édouard’s wines the lovely complexity and tension old vines can provide. His wines are expressive, bright and finessed." - Elevage Selections
