Domaine Denis Carré

This domaine was established by Denis Carré and his wife in 1974 with the first vintage produced in 1975. Situated in the heart of the village of Meloisey in the Hautes Côtes de Beaune, it covers 12ha in 12 different appellations. Although not certified, the domaine is farmed organically. It has been run by his son and daughter, Martial and Gaetane, since 2008. Full of energy and passion they are raising the quality of wines produced here at an impressive speed.

Tasting Notes

This wonderful Chardonnay shows punchy and concentrated fruit, honeyed & ripe with flavours of Canteloupe melon, stewed dessert apple, wet stones and a touch of vanilla. The impression is of superb ripeness of fruit, balanced by fresh citrus acidity and a poise and power that seems almost Puligny-like. A superb wine.

Vinification

Aged in 25% new oak barrels
