Fabrice Dodane (Domaine de Saint Pierre) - Arbois Blanc "Bodines" 2022
Fabrice Dodane took over Domaine de Saint Pierre in 2011 after Philippe Moyne, the celebrated founder of the Domaine, passed. Aa a strong supporter of organics and biodynamics, Fabrice brought it into organic certification in 2012. The Dos d'Chat range was started after a hail storm decimated his crop, and this is his third year releasing wines under this fantastic négociant label.
On the nose, Gold Parma apple, Galia melon, also some quince, a vegetal touch of cooked fennel and dark spice. On the palate, a fine texture with good natural wine grip, skilful, delicate reduction and Phenolic from oxidative aging, with bold acidity and robust minerality, slightly tart apple peel aroma in the aftertaste. A full-bodied and profound Chardonnay, which could also bear the domaine's label in terms of quality. 100% Chardonnay.
