Bright alpine sun ripens the hell out of these Chardonnay grapes, while the cooling influence of the mountain winds and cool nights retains a drinkable freshness and acidity. Thomas Finot is a forward thinking winemaker making wines from grapes on the brink of extinction (try out his Verdesse, it's similar to the Chard, but supercharged), whites with real finesse as well as body, and crunchy complex reds.
Give this a little decant 30-60 mins before you're gonna be drinking it, and it'll reward you with a werthers original type vibe. Unreal expression of chardonnay, ripe and rich like a top burg but has a grapey quality that you don't see on the Cote d'Or.
