BURGUNDY Domaine Normand (902428)
2018 Domaine Sylvaine & Alain Normand
Mâcon La Roche Vineuse
Case of 12
Grapes: 100% Chardonnay
High Environmental Value (HEV) Certified
Tasting Notes: Beautiful looking with a bright, young, pale yellow color. Intense, attractive and rich on the nose, with hints of very ripe white and yellow fruit and exotic fruit aromas. A fruity wine which is big, smooth and fresh on the palate.
This comes from roughly 13.5 acres and is made in a distinctly artisan style with native yeast in vat and an extensive upbringing on its fine lees (that spicy zesty quality in the finish of the wine comes from this lees contact). The bottling is usually in the summer following the harvest, but can easily wait until the autumn if the wine isn’t ready. Production averages 2,500-3,000 cases in normal years.
