Domaine de la Borde, Chardonnay Cote de Caillot, 6 Bottle Case

kBiodynamic. 100% Chardonnay. The quality of this Chardonnay is on par with white Burgundies well beyond this price point. The cuvée has a Puligny-like or even Chablis-like lemony brightness. After an hour of air, it develops a palpably grainy marine and mineral texture much like a Chablis, but with a fuller, fleshier fruit presence that's more like a Cote d'Or. A total package that's impossible to put down. Excellent with fish and shellfish, especially lobster.

Julien Mareschal established his tiny domaine of just 5 hectares in 2003, quickly moving his work in those vineyards to biodynamic practices when he saw the benefits being reaped by his neighbours (amongst them the illustrious Emmanuel Houillon and Pierre Overnoy). Today, his wines are firm favourites for their unfailingly faithful representations of Jurassien grape varieties.
