Genetie Bourgogne Blanc "Iluminé" Chardonnay - BonCru Wines
(White wine)

Genetie bourgogne blanc "iluminé" chardonnay


Grapes: 100% Chardonnay
Style: Elegant & full flavoured

From a 12 hectare plot in the village of Bussières, to the south of the Mâconnais region, comes this very fine Burgundy, made from 40-year old vines, on soil that suits Chardonnay so well. 10% of the wine is barrel aged to give a more textural, slightly creamy element.

This is a classic Chardonnay from Southern Burgundy - fine and buttery with floral notes on the nose.  A wine of substance and finesse on the palate. Some creamy textural notes up front reveal the discreet presence of oak, whilst on the finish there is some underlying minerality and a hint of citrus zestiness that provides long lasting flavours.

An admirable accompaniment to the classic Burgundian dish of poulet à la crème (chicken in creamy sauce), or a shellfish chowder. Great with vegetable risotto and pan fried fish, too.
