Bourgogne Chardonnay AC Teppes de Chatenay

£13.99

A mature white Burgundy from vineyards that were abandoned in 1869 following the outbreak of phylloxera which devastated French wine production. Replanted with Chardonnay vines by Jean-Pierre Teissedre in 1985, they now flourish, not least because the stony soil stores the day’s heat, releasing it by night thus helping the grapes reach optimum ripeness. Jean-Pierre’s Blanc is a rich light gold in colour,  with subtle aromas of pear and peach. It has good depth of flavour with some ripe apple and melon, underpinned by gentle acidity.

Domaines Teissedre

A chance meeting with Jean-Pierre Teissedre at a wine show in 2014 led to two of his wines being added to our range. They have been well received so we have taken three more: two of them famous names of Beaujolais. Jean-Pierre comes from a lengthy wine-making line (since 1885) and
says that for him viticulture is a matter of ‘Family, passion and techniques passed from father to son’.
Vineyard size 19 hectares. Organic since 1997.
