Domaine Talmard Mâcon-Chardonnay
WHY WE LOVE IT
- Here we have Chardonnay from the village of Chardonnay!
- Talmard’s most well-known bottling, this has been BTG staple in the restaurant scene for decades.
Varietal Composition: Chardonnay (100%)
Elaboration: Traditional, low temperature vinification and aging in steel tank.
Tasting Notes: You will find a fresh, light and fruity white wine. Displaying a clear dress with a yellow gold colour, this wine will then offer a clear nose. You will also notice scents of white flowers, enhanced by a hint of citrus. Throughout the mouth, the body remains supple, slightly mineral and it has a long aftertaste. This is a wine which requires some attention to ensure that it expresses all its potential.
The Talmard family has been growing wine in Mâcon through successive generations since the seventeenth century. The family estate in its current form boasts a surface area of thirty hectares sitting on clay-limestone soil in the high-quality communes of Uchizy and Chardonnay. The young Gérald Talmard now runs all aspects of the property, and his farming and winemaking techniques are ancestral and natural. The big difference here in comparison with other top producers in the appellation is that Talmard picks his fruit slightly earlier for a brighter, fresher backbone to what are grapes that already show deep, rich fruit expression.
