$61.00

This Bourgogne Chardonnay Les Herbeux is round, flinty and complex.

Domaine Arnaud Tessier is a rising star of Meursault’s producers. The Domaine is making refined and complex Chardonnays from the village’s best located vineyards. The “Herbeux” vineyard or climat is very well located just East of the Village of Meursault.

It presents incredible value. The nose is lively, showing beautiful aromas of stone fruits, flint, fresh butter, nuts and almonds along with a great minerality. The wine is round, silky and fresh on the palate. It can be enjoyed solely as an aperitif or paired with scallops, seafood or cheeses. Drink now. 100% Chardonnay.

*Climat refers to a named plot of vineyard.

"Another knock out Bourgogne from Arnaud & Catherine Tessier. It has all the trademark of a Meursault, without the price tage."

At Domaine Tessier, Catherine and Arnaud grow their vineyards organically. They ensure their vines are growing concentrated, ripe and healthy grapes. They employ only light ploughings, leave long branches on the vines and optimise the airflow through the canopy by removing leaves prior to harvest. After the hand harvest, grapes are pressed in a gentle pneumatic press. The juice is pumped into stainless steel vats and undergoes alcoholic fermentation. The process is as natural as possible and without introduction of external yeasts. The maturation is done in French oak barrels for nine to ten months – with only a few new oak barrels introduced – to preserve the beautiful fresh flavour of the wine and bring extra weight and complexity.
