Vintage: 2021

Established in 2009, Domaine La Croix Montjoie is the project of Sophie and Matthieu Woillez, located in the Yonne department in northern Burgundy. The estate covers ten  hectares in the village of Tharoiseau, one of the four villages that makes up the Vezelay appellation, which was created in 2017 and is exclusively for white wines. The wines here share the chiselled, mineral character of Chablis, which is a mere 30 miles north, but with a more expressively fruity character. Among the very few in Burgundy to have all their vines in one single parcel, Sophie and Matthieu are certified organic and farm on clay and limestone rich soils.

This is Sophie and Matthieu's Chardonnay made from grapes grown in the south of France and vinified in Vezelay. Fruity and aromatic with notes of ripe white peach, violet and fresh green herbs. This has the warmth of the south but the polish of the domain's Burgundian wines.
