Jean Max Le Lièvre Blanc 2020

Beaujolais, Burgundy, FranceThis chardonnay comes from growers in Denicé and Cogny, in the Pierres Dorées of Southern Bojo, and the regions' ferrous red clay and calcareous soils. The vines are 12-15 years old. This was native fermented and spent 11 months in older wood before a moon phase in stainless for tightening. Bright lemon, red apple, Asian pear, lemon verbena is bedded with a layer of lees, over a fine base of shimmering stony chalkiness that lingers on the finish. These are made in the cellar of Eric Texier in the Rhône, hence they are labelled as Vin de France. 1400 bottles produced.Tasted: 01 December 2021Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: ON 39.95 consignment Producer: Maxime BarrotDistributors: Le Sommelier Inc.
