Chateau Philippe le Hardi is one of the most important properties in Burgundy with vineyards across the Cotes d'or and Chalonnaise. The beautiful building is located in the village of Santenay and named after the nobleman who established Pinot Noir as the dominant red grape of Burgundy as we know it today. The chateau produces a wide variety of wines whose characteristics reflect the wide range of terroirs the region has to offer.

Château Philippe le Hardi is one of the most important properties in Burgundy with vineyards across the Cotes d'or and Chalonnaise. The beautiful building is located in the village of Santenay and named after the nobleman who established Pinot Noir as the dominant red grape of Burgundy as we know it today. The château produces a wide variety of wines whose characteristics reflect the wide range of terroirs the region has to offer.

The French government recently intervened to prevent the estate from falling into the hands of foreign investors, thereby preserving a significant slice of local heritage. Since then an overhaul of the winery and winemaking team has lifted quality to new heights.

Chassagne-Montrachet is one of the three great white wine villages of Burgundy. The gentle slope of well-drained limestone soil and ideal, consistently south-east facing aspect makes this the perfect environment for growing top-quality Chardonnay.

The grapes are gently pressed pneumatically and after settling and an initial rackng from solids the fermentation occurs in French oak barrels, followed by maturation on lees for 12 months with occasional batonnage.

Grape: 100% Chardonnay

Tasting Note: From a great year for whites, this outstanding Chardonnay is starting to show the benefits of a few years in bottle. Ripe, honeyed stone fruit with hints of grilled nuts, broad-textured with typical minerality rounding out this classy white.

Food Match: Ideal with roasted chicken and sole meuniere.

Closure: Natural Cork

Farming Practices: Contains Sulfites
