Prosper Maufoux Chardonnay Bourgogne 2016

Estate: Passionate about winemaking, Prosper Maufoux founded the Burgundian estate in 1860. Located in the village of Santenay, in the heart of the southern Côte d’Or, the estate has a long history of crafting high quality, terroir driven wines. Today the company is headed by Eric Piffaut, whose family’s winemaking roots in Burgundy go back to 1898. Winemaker Nadine Gublin is at the helm, receiving many accolades, including being named the first female “Winemaker of the Year” by France’s leading wine magazine, La Revue du Vin de France.

Winemaking: Alcoholic and malolactic fermentation in stainless steel, followed by ageing on fine lees in stainless steel for 10 months.

Tasting Notes: Gold in colour with cheerful aromas of lemon, minerals and a trace of fresh brioche. Creamy lemon and yellow apple are glazed by bright acidity. Citrus zest, brioche and minerals linger on the crisp finish. Fresh and pure, fantastic on its own or with a wide variety of dishes.

Pairing Suggestions from the Winemaker: Grilled fish, seafood and charcuterie.
Enjoy at 12C [54F].
