Description

100% Chardonnay. Brother-sister team Claude Emmanuelle and Louis Benoît Desvignes have made the first white wine in the eight generations of the domaine. The vines are in the same vineyard as the Gamay for their also-new-in-2020 "L'Aube à Javernières". The 0.26-hectare plot of Chardonnay is on the same deep clay as the red, just outside the Morgon appellation on the edge of the Javernières lieu-dit below the Côte du Py hill. The farming is certified-organic and the harvest by hand. The clusters were left mainly whole, with 20% of them destemmed, and put through a long, gentle press. The wine was aged in concrete eggs for 7 months and bottled with a light, non-sterile filtration.
