A very bright and zesty Chardonnay with superb aromas of acacia flowers, grassy notes, lemon and white peach. Nice and fruity and with ample length on the palate and subtle oak giving a little extra body and texture. Overall though very lean and crisp with enough acidity to ensure it can age gracefully.
Try this with pan-fried river fish, a sea fish in white sauce or hot shellfish.
In tuns and in 450l barrels for ten months and then five months of flavor maturation in stainless steel vats.
Rully vineyards stretch for about four kilometers from Chagny where it has a few climats, to the southern limit of the Rully commune where it adjoins the Mercurey vineyards. This area has a remarkable limestone terroir with enough marl and clay for the Chardonnay grape variety to have found its land of choice.
Chanzy is a 80 hectare Estate, divided between Côte Chalonnaise, Côte de Beaune and Côte de Nuits with their base in Bouzeron.
In 2017 Philippe Der Megreditchian purchased this historic Estate and set about a radical overhaul. Appointing Max Blondelle as winemaker, (ex. Winemaker of Domine Chanson) together they reshaped the range into a tighter offering, adding vineyards in Côte Chalonnaise and Côte de Beaune due to their purchase of Domaine Pagnotta. Consequently, this means that all of Chanzy’s wines are made with at least 90% Estate-grown fruit, practically unheard of for a Burgundian producer of this size. Chanzy owns 5 Clos including 2 Monopoles, 11 Grands Crus and 16 Premiers Crus. They are one of the few Burgundy producers to achieve Haute Valeur Environnementale level 3; the most highly regarded certification for agriculture in France.
