Description

"Made from 100% Chardonnay- has the nose of a Corton and the mouthfeel of a Meursault. Rich, without being overbearing, this is an absolute treat from Mellot!"

"As the 'Les Penitents' name implies, to farm these steep vineyards requires a quasi-religious devotion - a worthy charity indeed - our drinking pleasure! In 2013, this historic estate celebrates its 500th anniversary - 19 successive generations of winegrowers in the Mellot family. Today Alphonse Jr. is in total charge, having taken over the reigns from his father Alphonse Sr. fully five years ago." -Importer
