Yves Duport - Les Cotes Chardonnay - Bugey, France


100% Chardonnay

Yves farms 10 ha of vines biodynamically with great success in the Bugey, a tiny appellation of only 500 ha. He makes elegant, precise and controlled wines from Pinot, Mondeuse, Altesse (Rousette) and Chardonnay. Across all of Yves cuvees you have finesse and balance, his wine all showing great quality for price. The geology of Bugey is similar to its neighbour, Savoie – fragmented parcels of vines planted in steep slopes above the valley floor. The sedimentary soils date back to a time when dinosaurs roamed and the climate was tropical.

The Les Cotes chardonnay is biodynamic, direct pressed into tank for 6 months and bottled in spring. This is one for people who may think they may not like Chardonnay! It’s lean and refreshing, nothing like the oaky/buttery ones that may spring to mind.

Tasting notes :  Clean cut Chardonnay with a nice balance between texture, fruit and acidity. Honey, white peach, citrus.

Food Pairing : Try it with some rich and aromatic, but not too spicy South East Asian food. Alpine cheeses are also a great match, Camembert, Gruyère, Munster.
