Domaine La Croix MontjoieAll products from this vendor
The winery was established in 2009. Its name comes from the cross located at the crossroads between Vézelay and Taroiseau. The cross marks the place where the pilgrims from Avallon first saw Vezelay and felt joy. On 10 hectares, Chardonnay grapes are grown, also known as the emerald Burgundy grapes. The slopes facing south / southeast allow the grapes to reach their full potential. The vines grow on rocky, clayey calcareous soil that contains fossils of Gryphea Gigantea. The climate is continental, with harsh winters, and warm summer days are replaced by cool nights.
ChardonnayAll products from this varietal
Fresh chardonnay shows bright fruity profile and strong body. Chardonnay wines usually have expressed aromatic complexity and usually it happens due to winemaking techniques (particularly the use of oak promote notes of vanilla, smoke and hints of spices) rather than the variety's intrinsic qualities. Also, this variety can develop cream, yeast and brioche bread notes. Because of this high level of winemaker influence, Chardonnay has become famous as the "winemaker's wine".
