*En Primeur 2019 In Bond Pricing* “...Charles Ballot is producing serious wines, old-fashioned in the best sense, that deserve to be better known.” William Kelley, Wine Advocate, February 2020
Burgundy is Chardonnay`s spiritual home and the best White Burgundies are dry, rich, honeyed wines with marvellous poise, elegance and balance.
*Immediate Delivery* Always an appealing and very classic style of Meursault with hints of honey, quince, mango and fresh double cream. Despite its ripe exotic fruit character, it has a balancing freshness providing drive and energy. A very rewarding wine.
Terroirs of Bourgogne from the Côte de Beaune and the Côte de Nuits are recognized by the Bourgogne Côte d'Or appellation. Cuvée des Forgets comes from domaine Javillier's vineyards on clay soils in the Côte de Beaune.
Grape variety: 100% Chardonnay
A pleasing balance between weight and freshness. Good tension and restrained fruit, promising characteristics in a wine during this sunny vintage. Perfect with shellfish and molluscs, seafood risotto, grilled or pan-fried fish, veal cutlets with creamy sauces, goat's cheeses and hard cow's milk cheeses.
