Domaine Marie-Pierre Chevassu, Chardonnay Sous Voile 2018
This appetising chardonnay spends 18 months under a yeast veil and consequently has great freshness and purity. Golden yellow colour with warm notes of fino sherry, lightly toasted almonds, brioche and spice butter.
Winemaker Marie-Pierre Chevassu-Fassenet is one of the few female winemakers in the Jura. She took over her family�s wine estate in 2008 and manages her 4.5 hectares from vine to cellar door herself. Located in Ch�teau-Chalon, the most traditional part of the Jura, Marie-Pierre makes meticulous modern reds and whites. Her reds are carefully sorted at harvest and manually destemmed before going into CO2-filled tanks to avoid using SO2 at bottling. No oak is used, resulting in a deliciously full-fruit flavour with a touch of CO2 that disappears with some aeration.
