Chardonnay * 75cl * 13% ABV * Burgundy, France
Domaine Belleville was created at the beginning of the 20th century in the heart of Burgundy and in 2018 the property was bought by an enterprising American family. At a recent tasting, the winemaker took us through all 20 (!) wines he makes - his philosophy is simple and quite unusual: from 20 vineyard plots, he makes 20 different wines. Rich in texture with plenty of ripe tropical and citrus fruit notes, this has both concentration and elegance at the same time. Drink with pan-fried scallops and beurre blanc.
