A cool start to the season slowed early vine growth and delayed flowering, resulting in moderate yields. By late December, our organic farming practices had the vineyards well placed for a stellar vintage. Healthy canopies kept the grapes cool through a record hot summer, preserving freshness, and our Chardonnay was harvested with fruit purity and vitality.
Two separate parcels of hand-harvested fruit were cooled overnight, whole-bunch pressed then naturally fermented in French oak barriques. The high natural acidity of Dijon 95 required malolactic fermentation to help reduce acid, building texture and complexity. Bâtonnage was conducted every four weeks over 9 months’ maturation, before blending and bottling in January 2023.
