With its source of grapes from northern Burgundy, this cool, collected wine is as close to Champagne in taste as is possible. Balancing Chardonnay with some Aligoté, it is the richness of the Chardonnay that wins out, giving a ripe, creamy wine that could benefit from some bottle age. Imported by Vitis Imports.
