Aexandre’s extremely rare and sought after natural white O16 is 100% Chardonnay from Bourgogne’s tiny hamlet of Uzichy, North of Macon. The grapes for this astonishing masterpiece of a wine come from an old vineyard of which the first vines were planted in 1910 (yes, you read correctly!) on chalky clay-limestone soils. The vines are lovingly tended according to biodynamic principles adn gift us with fruit of indescribable depth and concentration. Only natural fermentation happens in the cellar, elevage in old barrels and no fining, filtration or added SO2. Purity, power and soul: dried saffron and incense on nashi pear, yuzu zest and salted cashew butter.
