Highly bred, subtle, yet rich in nuance, this fresh and youthful Chardonnay reveals aromas of golden apple, fresh almonds, fern and a touch of citrus. The lively, almost frisky palate is surprisingly rich, with alluringly spicy back- avors that shine through. This Premier Cru Montagny’s re nement and delicacy are harmoniously matched by its durably well-built structure, building to a nuanced aftertaste that is long and avorful with distinctive minerality.
Ken and Grace Evenstad, Founders of Domaine Serene Winery, came full circle in their passion for great Pinot Noir and Chardonnay when they purchased the respected Burgundy wine estate, Château de la Crée, in 2015. Featuring a restored 15th century château in the historic Côte de Beaune village of Santenay, the Château de la Crée estate was originally owned by Nicolas Rolin, Chancellor to the Duke of Burgundy, Philippe the Good, and founder of the renowned Hospices de Beaune. Along with his wife Guigone de Salins, Rolin established a tradition of charitable giving through wine, something the Evenstads consider a foundational principle at Domaine Serene as well.
