2022 Clotilde Davenne Bourgogne Blanc (Cote D'auxerre)Chardonnay from France


List Price: $35.99 - You're saving $6.00!



"Formerly chief oenologist for Jean-Marc Brocard in Chablis, Clotilde Davenne started her own domaine in 2005. Now with 30ha of estate vines, she makes wines from Chablis, Petit Chablis and other regional Bourgogne appellations. From her home vineyard in Préhy, planted on limestone in the 1970s, this unoaked white spends up to 18 months on fine lees in tank to accentuate the fruit. Andy Howard MW: Appealing, good density, powerful and lingering finish. Great clarity and focus. I would certainly place this as a good AP (or even premier cru) Chablis. Beatrice Bessi: Vibrant nose, layers of orange, grapefruit, basil, lemongrass. Lovely palate, refreshing, with good concentration of fruit. Good complexity. Class. Georgina Crawley: An inviting nose of fresh almond and hazelnut, greengage and fleshy stone fruits. Rounded depth, silky texture, a mineral finish with freshness and salinity."

Product Description:

Outpacing the likes of some truly remarkable producers including Jean-Noel Gagnard, Patrick Javillier, and Etienne Sauzet (!!!) and matching the indomitable A & P Villaine (that's right, the DRC team) is Clotilde Davenne's Bourgogne Blanc Côtes d'Auxerre 2022. Decanter's tasting panel raved about the wine, and we can confirm that all the hype and adulation is warranted - this is the real deal; a much anticipated 2022 Burgundy vintage is delivering what we've all been yearning for...

Born in the "foot of the Morvan", Davenne is a native of Burgundy. She was the top oenologist at the legendary Jean Marc Brocard before endeavoring out on her own in the late 1980s. Since then, she's been making handcrafted, boutique wines that are absolutely doused in character and precision. But this wine is different; it launches her profile into the stratosphere and will certainly make her name a household one from here on out.

We'd only emphasize both the fruit concentration/purity and the complexity of this wine - it's a total showstopper.
