Jean-Claude Rateau - Clos les Mariages Blanc 2017
Region: Beaune / Burgundy
Grapes: Chardonnay with some Pinot Gris (the local Beurot strain)
From a mix of young and old vines from the clay and limestone soils below Greves.
A silky and elegant style of Chardonnay with notes of pear and stone fruit alongside more floral and citrus notes. Very smooth fruit balanced by a fine line of acidity. Drinking beautifully now but also not now. In the future.
