Thierry Fournier Chardonnay
Made from a handful of plots from three different villages. Based on the 2012 vintage and with 20% reserve, it is a joy to drink. Complex mid palate with oodles of butter alongside some delicious bitter elements. Loads of biscuit, toffee, nuts and a brilliantly married mid to late. Sweet lemon peel and a touch of salt, caramel and liquorice.
The Maison was founded by 4th generation vigneron, Thierry Fournier, in 1983 but it has realised a new form by the introduction of his sons Julien and Maxime. They work with 45 plots from 11 villages, giving them a wonderfully diverse palate of grapes to create a fruity, rich and complex series of wines.
