Chateau Philippe le Hardi has vineyards across the Cotes d'Or and Chalonnaise, including in the En Vesvau lieu dit of St Aubin, overlooking Chassagne-Montrachet, giving a great value alternative.

Château Philippe le Hardi is one of the largest estates in Burgundy, with over 90 hectares of vineyards. The land has been acquired gradually over the decades, and this “mosaic” of vineyards is reflected in the beautiful patterns on the château’s roof, recreated on all their labels. They see themselves as pioneers of environmentally-friendly farming, and have been Terra Vitis certified since 2004, even going so far as to install an apiary in the vineyards to show that their techniques are bee-friendly.

In the winery, oenologist Gerard Fagnoni emphasises gentle extraction for elegance and delicate tannic structure. The wines from the Côte d’Or and the Côte Chalonnaise are vinified in two separate cellars, keeping the different appellations stylistically unique. The cellars are modern and sparkling clean, so expect a more refined, pure style of Burgundy.

Saint-Aubin lies slightly westward of the main ridge of the Cote d’Or but shares much of the same soils, and this Saint-Aubin was grown on the same mix of clay, sand and most importantly limestone than is so critical to Burgundy’s terroir. It is a great alternative to Chassagne- and Puligny-Montrachet.

 

Grape Varieties: 100% Chardonnay

Farming Practices: Sustainable  

Tasting Notes: Both decadent and refined, the ‘En Vesvau’ shows white peach, orange-blossom and cream on the nose, with citrus peel and toastiness more prevalent on the palate. Rich and velvety texture, perfectly balanced with clean acidity to make it dangerously easy to pour that second glass.

Food Match: Salmon and Broccoli Tagliatelle with roasted hazelnuts.

Awards: International Wine Challenge 2017 - Silver

Sugar Level: <1g/l

Closure: Natural Cork
