Wijnkasteel Genoels-Elderen

Chardonnay Blauw 2017


Succulent Starfruit & Caramel

A fresh, fully oaked Chardonnay from a stunning Belgian castle. Malolactic fermentation adds to notes of butter and brioche, alongside fresh and developed flavors. A beautiful bottle and compelling story!

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. Learn more
