Clos des Vignes du Maynes – Dream Team (a Chardonnay Masterclass)


Imagine this: two bottles. Same Vintage. Same Winemaker. Same Parcelle. Same wine. Yet one bottle had received a tiny dose of SO2 (10-20mg/L) for stability & has been aged 12mths. The other: naked. No So2 at all but longer ageing, 18mths on fine lees, for that extra bit of stability.

Wouldnt this be fun? Wouldnt this be a fine lesson on the impact of SO2 on wines? A fine lesson on natural wines in general! Let us assure you: it is also an extremely delicious, a truely moving & touching comparison. 2 great Chardonnays – so close to each other & yet so far away. We have 12 x 2 bottles of this outstanding experience reserved for wine lovers. It hardly gets any more exclusive – the Léandre allocation for all of Switzerland was 48 bottles!
