Chardonnay Blauw 2019
Succulent Citrus & Slate
A fresh, fully oaked Chardonnay from a stunning Belgian castle. Malolactic fermentation adds to notes of butter and brioche, alongside stunning minerality comparable to a Chablis. A beautiful bottle and compelling story!
WIJNKASTEEL GENOELS-ELDEREN | For Belgium's largest wine domain, the Burgundian comparisons are unavoidable: winemaker Joyce van Rennes studied in Burgundy, the original vines were sourced from a Burgundian supplier, and, just like in Burgundy, the roots draw from a limestone subsoil.
