Derain Bourgogne La Combe 2012

75cl   -  Bourgogne  -  Biodynamic

Bottle 75cl - £28.03

Domaine Derain are biodynamic producers in Burgundy with vines in a number of different Burgundian appellations.

The vines for this lovely Chardonnay are located close to the village of Puligny-Montrachet where there is deep brown soil. The yield is only 35 hectolitres per hectare and this means the fruit is packed with flavour and the wine reflects this. La Combe is a tiny plot being less than one third of a hectare.

This is a wine for contemplating. It opens up slowly in the glass, but then reveals an array of flavours and aromas that are truly compelling. This is a lovely, expressive Chardonnay.
