Zachys Virtual Wine Tasting
Zachys invites you to taste your way through the world's most popular varietal, Chardonnay. Made in a vast array of styles, ranging from lean and mineral-driven to rich and buttery, Chardonnay transmits its terroir extremely well, which allows producers to mix and match new and used oak or stainless steel barrels to highlight the nuances of vintage and soil. And what better way to understand these nuances than tasting three wines from Chardonnay's birthplace, France!
M. Morey 2011 Puligny Montrachet Les Referts (750ML) (92 pts)
Dom. des Heritiers du Comte Lafon 2018 Vire Clesse (92 pts)
Dom. Lafage 2019 Novellum Chardonnay (750ML)
The tasting will begin with Domaine Lafage's 2019 Novellum from the Roussillon region of Southern France - richly textured and similar in style to a Sonoma wine. Moving north, the tasting will include Domaine des Heritiers du Comte Lafon 2018 Vire Clesse from Burgundy's southernmost wine region, Macon. With 156 years of production under their belts and numerous Grand Cru and 1er Cru plots in their estate, they know great vineyards. The tasting concludes with Marc Morey's 2011 Puligny Montrachet Les Referts is a 1er Cru wine from a vineyard site that straddles the border of Puligny Montrachet and Meursault. The result is a wine with the former's rich and concentrated aromas, and the latter's flinty minerality that comes with years of age (as this one does). Visit Zachys - The Most Trusted Source for Fine Wine in the World" - to find these and other fine wines from around the globe.
