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".
The Champagne region combines specific climate, soil and topography conditions that form a unique terroir which is currently used by approx. 15 000 vine-growers and 300 wine houses. The region consists of 4 sub-regions - Montagne de Reims, Côte des Blancs, Vallée de la Marne and Côte des Bar. Each provides customers with a different style of sparkling wine. The dominant grapes are Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier that are mainly used in Montagne de Reims and Vallée de la Marne, while Chardonnay shows excellent results in Côte des Blancs. The region is even more appealing because of the so called "Growe's Champagne" wines, the production of which is overseen by one family from start to finish - they grow and press grapes, make wine and bottle it in the territory of one wine house. This gives the wine a true charm, aura and unique flavour.
