Genetie ‘Illumine’ Bourgogne Chardonnay

£15.60
Named GENETIE, in honour of the mysterious name found etched into the stone walls of the centuries-old winery. Located in southern Burgundy, Genetie will continue to craft interesting wines that truthfully represent the diverse terroir of the Mâconnais.

From a 12 hectare plot in the village of Bussières, to the south of the Mâconnais region, with an average vine age of about 40 years. The soil is classic argilo-calcaire that suits Chardonnay so well and that lends elegance and finesse to the final wines. 10% of the wine is barrel aged to give a more textural, slightly creamy element. A classic Chardonnay from Southern Burgundy - fine buttery and floral notes on the nose and a wine of substance and finesse on the palate. Some creamy textural notes up front reveal the discreet presence of oak, whilst on the finish there is some underlying minerality and a hint of citrus zestiness that provides long lasting flavours. An admirable accompaniment to the classic Burgundian dish of poulet à la crème (chicken in creamy sauce), or a shellfish chowder. Great with vegetable risotto and pan fried fish, too.

Tasting Note:
