Variety: 100% Chardonnay
Estate: Domaine de Saint Pierre was established in the late 80s in the village of Matheny, located in the Arbois AOP, by Dole lawyer Philippe Moyne. Fabrice Dodane joined the estate as manager in 1989 after wine studies in Beaune and several years work at the Pupillin Frutière. After Moyne's untimely death in 2011, Fabrice took over the estate. The Estate began conversion to organic viticulture in 2002 and is now Ecocert certified. The Chardonnay is made in the ouille (topped-off) style showing the freshness that Chardonnay can express in the region. It is from primarily limestone-clay soils, fermented with native yeasts and minimal sulfur is added at bottling.
On the nose it is crisp and clean with delicate aromas of apricot, lime flower, almond skin, and tropical mango. The palate is much more intense with luscious, juicy green apple, cashew, sea salt, and tangy minerals. Long, textured, and a hint nutty on the finish, this would be perfect pairing with many different kinds of foods, especially roasted poultry.
