Caillez Lemaire Chardonnay de la Vallée 2015
A fiery and rich pure Chardonnay from the village of Damery on the banks of the Marne. Presently, it is focused on the black forest fruits at the front end. The palate brings the sensation of the oak in beautifully. Textured, saline and exotic with loads of mid palate weight and depth.
We totally fell in love with this producer when we first visited nearly 10 years ago. Based in Damery, with vines in 57 plots in 7 villages, predominantly Meunier, their wines show a crisp style and age like legends. They acquired the HEV certificate recently and there is a real honesty to their winemaking and wines.
