The fruit was harvested cold and pressed gently over 2 hours; the “Coeur” or heart of the press and the other press fraction were separate to be fermented. We used 40% new oak from carefully selected barrels from a small Burgundian Cooper Tonnellerie Plantagnêt premium light toast. The wine is fermented in barrels for both alcoholic and malolactic, completed naturally with no additives. The wine aged for ten months in barrels and then transferred gently to a tank in which it will stay until bottling. The 2021 Composition Chardonnay was bottled the first week of September 2022.
