2020-C 2020 Yohan Lardy Les Bruyères Beaujolais-Villages Blanc AOP, France (750ml)   

About the Icons
A Monthly Wine Club Selection
Bright golden robe. Inviting aromas of ripe stone fruit set against chalky minerality. The palate is fresh, crisp and pure, showing an exotic medley of flavors: yellow peach, quince and dragon fruit, tempered with a charming floral note. Beautiful texture all the way through with mouthwatering acidity and a bright, juicy finish. A beautiful example of Chardonnay’s potential for both delicacy and complexity!

In 2011, Yohan Lardy returned to his native village of Fleurie aˆter spending almost a year in Chile, working harvest and winemaking. The following year he started his eponymous domaine with 2 hectares of old vines—planted in 1911 and 1950—on the heights of the Moulin-á-Vent appellation in the prestigious plot called "Les Michelons". At just 27 years old, Yohan is completely submersed in winegrowing. He is the fiˆth generation of a Beaujolais winemaking family, and both Yohan’s father Lucien and sister Laura make wines under their own names.

Today, the estate consists of 7 hectares of vineyards. The fruit for this bottling was sourced from a plot of organically farmed Chardonnay located near Fleurie. The grapes were hand-picked and immediately pressed; the juice was barrel fermented at a low temperature with no SO2 using native yeasts, and then aged on fine lees for 6 months in stainless steel tanks.
