Domaine La SoufrandiseAll products from this vendor
The Domaine la Soufrandise winery is located in the center of the Pouilly Fuissé appellation in the south of Burgundy. The vineyard area is only 6 hectares, but the strength is hidden in the age of the vines (half over 45) and the variety of sites (over 20); so many climats create so many blending or breeding opportunities. The soil is favorable for Chardonnay grapes and therefore the winery specializes in the production of high class white wines. The winery invests in the care of the vines and grapes in order to convey the authenticity of the terroir.
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".
Mâconnais can be proud of its white Chardonnay wines - they are excellent representatives of "white" Burgundy with a good price/quality ratio. These are definitely the best wines to start with when getting to know Burgundy for they are pure and charming in their simplicity.
