This petit Chardonnay was picked à main and then pressed avec les whole bunches. Ne pas de SO2 and toutes les solides dans this barrel fermentation sauvage – ne pas de yeast added! The oak is tête de hog Français, naturellement mon colonel, then dix months stirring avec les lees. We have here un vin restrained, sophisticated, fabrique belgique.

An engaging chardonnay with peach, lemon, honeysuckle and barley sugar flavours slipping attractively through the palate. It smells, tastes and feels good.
Wine Spectator, June 2017, Maryann Worobiec. Score 90
Fragrant accents of lemongrass and thyme make an appealing addition to the core flavors of lemon, melon and white peach. Spice and toast details echo faintly in the background of this juicy white. Drink now. 1,000 cases made. –MW

Subtle leesy citrus and apple-fruited nose. Cool and chalky textured, a cross between Chablis and Adelaide Hills. Super-fresh, not terribly intense on the mid palate but elegant and beautifully dry but without going over to the lean side. Elegant and long. The oak is subtle and the whole is fresh and harmonious. These guys are good… (JH)
