Château de Chamilly

Château de Chamilly stands in the heart of a green valley situated to the north of the Côte Chalonnaise, 20 minutes south of Beaune. It was built during the 17th century by Noël Bouton (lieutenant general of the armies of King Louis XIV, Governor of Strasbourg and Marquis of Chamilly), on the foundations of a 14th century fortified farm. The Desfontaine family bought it, along with the surrounding land, at the beginning of the 19th century. Taken with the buildings, the land and the incomparable lifestyle, the Desfontaine family continually restore and develop the surroundings.
Forward and open on the nose, the palate is steely fresh, with a razor sharp acidity that perfectly matches the grapefruit, dessert apple and peach Chardonnay fruit. A lovely quenching citrus 'lift' adds vibrancy to the mid palate with a creamy cereal and cut grass character on the long finish.

Fermented in stainless steel, there is no oak aging at all. Hand-picked in small baskets, the wine is settled in tank on fine lees for 6 months prior to bottling.
