Bellefontaine Chardonnay 75cl
"Very pure and bright with an attractive orange blossom nose. Zesty acidity is nicely complemented by some richness and peach notes on the palate."
Made by Samantha Bailey and Guillaume Letang, this Chardonnay taken from two different regions, Gascony for freshness and Languedoc for texture and fruit. A really tasty little wine, so if you fancy Chardonnay without a big price tag, get this.
After 10 years of Boutinot importing wines from France back into the UK, Paul Boutinot started Boutinot France in January 1990, with the first office being in the middle of the vines in Julienas – the perfect location to navigate the regions of Beaujolais and Macon. Since then, the company has since grown and has relocated to Macon. It has over 20 employees taking care of production across the whole of France. This company uses a combination of models to source their wines, from large-scale, high-quality coops to small, family growers and single domains, as well as from their own vineyards in Cairanne and Saint-Vérand. The expertise of four winemakers, including Master Blender Samantha Bailey, and a network of partner growers is drawn on to create their wines.
