Valentin Création Chardonnay AOC 2017
This chardonnay is kept in wooden barrels (barriques) made of French oak,
for a period of 10-12 months. The barrels are stirred regularly (batonnage)to develop the nuances of vanilla and smoke, as well as to give a structure which is more pronounced than the traditional chardonnay . Nonetheless, our barrique production methods always pay great attention to the grape variety, in order to achieve a perfect marriage between the wine and the wood. Ideal with white meat and smoked fish.
The typical white grape of Burgundy and Champagne. Nowadays, it is found in many vineyards throughout the world. However, Chardonnay demands particular conditions if it is to develop fully all of its qualities. If the climate is too hot, its very subtle bouquet can become too intense and vulgar, resulting in a wine which is heavy and unpleasant.
