Analysis

The house of Prosper Maufoux has been crafting wines since 1860. This crisp Chardonnay sees no wood being fermented and rested in stainless steel. This is a lean and crisp Chardonnay with bright flavors and great balance thanks to a generous dose of bright acidity. This wine can age for a couple of years but it is built to drink today.

How to Enjoy

Serve chilled as an aperitif or serve with grilled or smoked fish.
