2017 Maison Evenstad, Santenay Premier Cru Beaurepaire Chardonnay 750ml
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 Evenstads.
Seductively expressive and highly aromatic, the 2017 Maison Evenstad, Premier Cru Beaurepaire Chardonnay boasts an inviting bouquet of fresh violet florals and ripe citrus fruits. On the palate, a pure fusion of pear and apple undulate as notes of vanilla surge in unison. A vibrant mineral salinity contours the mouth in perfect harmony with a silky viscosity. Crisp and mouth-watering, the linear and focused character of this exquisite wine carries through to an elegantly long and persistent finish.
