Michael Shaps Chardonnay 2017
In 2007 Michael discovered the five-acre Wild Meadow Vineyard site and realized after the first vintage the amazing potential it had. Using the same techniques and approach to this chardonnay as he does at his winery in Meursault, this chardonnay expresses the elegance and complexity that is often associated with his Burgundian wines. The 2017 Chardonnay is a combination of ideal fruit quality from this special site, a slow non-inoculated fermentation and prolonged malolactic fermentation with heavy lees contact. The result has yielded a complete wine that will age well for 5-7 years.
