The Chardonnay vineyard is named after Jean Leon's daughter.
Planted on a hillside at an elevation of 300 meters, the vineyard has moderately deep, dark yellowish brown soils that are well-drained, moderately fine textured and contain a lot of stones. The soils are very compact and calcareous clay. Adequate levels of organic matter and very high levels of calcium carbonate and active limestone. The water holding capacity is high, but the soils drain swiftly.
He made this wine from grapes grown in the vineyard named after his daughter.
Fermented and aged on its lees in French oak for 6 months.
Yearly production: 20,000 to 27,000 bottles.
intensely aromatic with hints of tropical fruit against a backdrop of toast and spices. Lush on the palate, wonderfully creamy, culminating in a long finish.
a Chardonnay that pairs well with fish served in sauces, au gratin recipes and paella. Also a good choice for white meat, especially fowl in light sauces.
