2013 Château de la Crée, Premier Cru Beaurepaire Chardonnay
The renowned Beaurepaire vineyard property is located in Upper Santenay, one of three distinct regions in this renowned village. It's a southeast-facing slope comprised of thin, chalky limestone soils. A portion of this picturesque Premier Cru vineyard is owned and meticulously farmed by the Evenstad's.
Aromas of baked apple and delicate floral chamomile fill the nose. On the palate, a blend of toasted nut characters meets a vibrant mineral salinity that carries through to a long, elegant, and well-integrated finish.
