Burgundy, France

Grown on the limestone hilltops between Buxy and Saint Gengoux le National, this Côte Chalonnaise Chardonnay is fermented and initially aged in stainless before being transferred to oak for 3-6 months depending on the vintage. With a fine pale golden hue, the nose is fresh and fruit-driven with lots of citrus and lemon peel when young and with hints of honeysuckle and hawthorn. Crisp and refreshing when young, the locals consider this to be at its prime after seven years - we've just never seen a bottle last this long!
The Côte Chalonnaise is a sub-region of the broader Bourgogne designation lying just to the south of the Côte d'Or where the serious prices start in Burgundy. It's the place to go for relatively good value Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, where appellations such as Rully and Montagny for the whites, and Givry and Mercurey for the reds, have gained increasing importance and regard as the prices further north have soared. 
Vignerons de Buxy was founded as a cooperative of 98 growers in 1931, with most of the family vineyards remaining involved today. This tight and exclusive member network ensures access to increasingly more sought after grapes where demand consistently exceeds supply.
