About
Domaine la Croix Montjoie "L'Impatiente" is an exquisite, dry white wine, produced in the Burgundy region of France, specifically within the Vézelay appellation. Crafted from 100% Chardonnay grapes, this wine is a testament to the winery's dedication to expressing the unique terroir of Vézelay through meticulous vineyard management and winemaking practices. "L'Impatiente" epitomizes the elegance and finesse of Chardonnay, showcasing Domaine la Croix Montjoie's commitment to creating wines that are both refined and expressive of their Burgundian heritage.
Producer
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.
Tasting notes

Upon tasting, “L’Impatiente” reveals a vibrant palate of green apple, lemon zest, and white peach, accented by subtle floral notes and a crisp minerality that reflects the limestone-rich soils of the region. The wine’s balanced acidity and clean finish make it both refreshing and complex, inviting further exploration of its nuanced flavors.

Pairing

This Chardonnay pairs beautifully with light seafood dishes, such as grilled sea bass or oysters, where its acidity and fruit notes complement the delicacy of the seafood. It also matches well with soft, creamy cheeses or a simple chicken salad, enhancing the flavors of the dish with its bright and elegant profile, making for a harmonious and sophisticated dining experience.

Burgundy (Bourgogne) can be confusing because of the multiplicity of its appellations - all the small vineyards are divided between multiple producers so it can often be difficult to understand this diversity. However, it is the exact reason why the wines of Burgundy are considered to be the finest in the world. A common topic of discussion, when talking about Burgundy, is the concept of "terroir" - a unique combination of soil and climate conditions that affects the taste of wine in the appellations, making it unique to each village. Winemakers mainly use the capricious Pinot Noir and the classical Chardonnay to create true masterpieces, while Gamay and Aligote are used to make wines of a bit simpler style. Particular attention should be paid to the hierarchy of wines. First there are the regional and village wines, a step higher - the Premier Cru wines and the outstanding Grand Cru - at the top. Due the complex and inconsistent weather that can notably impact wine quality especially in bad harvest years, a very important factor here is the so called millesime - the harvest year of the grapes the particular wine is produced of, because each of these years has its own unique taste. Purchasing Burgundy wines is not easy because there are many details that should be taken into consideration - the class of the vineyard, the assessment of the manufacturer, the age of the vines, the quality of the wine as well as the millesime and, of course, the potential of ageing. The sellers play a big role here - they must be truly passionate about wine and able to offer only the best quality producers with a good reputation. That is exactly the way "Noble Wine" works!
