Bourgogne Chardonnay Arnaud Ente 2015
Arnaud Ente and his wife, Marie-Odile, craft exquisite micro-production cuvées that easily rank amongst some of the finest in the region. This Bourgogne Chardonnay comes from young vines from Puligny-Montrachet and Meursault plant in 2002 and 2012, respectively. It opens with slight whiffs of smoky reduction but opens to reveal delicious notes of white orchard fruits, citrus oils, spring flowers and stoney minerality. Fleshy and medium- to full-bodied on the palate, it has great natural concentration, lively acidity and a wonderfully pure, mineral-tinged finish. A wine that completely belies its modest classification.
