2020 Chardonnay

Le Grand Clos

2020 Chardonnay

Pure stone-fruit, lanolin-textured complexity, with length, breadth and a finely-textured elegance, giving way to a complex, marzipan and limestone mineral-inflected 'calcaire' finish.

Winemaker Notes

The Le Grand Clos Pinot Noir hails from the 'artistic' 2020 vintage, in which the warm, dry harvest conditions allowed for unhurried, considered choices that ultimately respected the transparency of the local terroir and character of the year. Both Le Grand Clos Chardonnay and Pinot Noir blocks happen to come from parcels on the western side of the Le Clos Jordanne vineyard: a happenstance of aspect and geology.

- Thomas Bachelder

Le Grand Clos Chardonnay, from the lovely and artistic 2020 vintage, overflows with dry extract and verve, and is rich, taut, and seamless. Tasting this ‘Grand Vin’ at a slightly warmer temperature than usual highlights the complexity of the Chardonnay grape at its best, showcasing its dolomitic limestone terroir.
