Domaine des Rouques-Queues is located in the village of Sampigny les Maranges, below Beaune in Bourgogne. Isabelle and Jean-Yves Vantey work biodynamically, with a horse in the vineyards, picking everything by hand and turning their grapes into great natural wines. Without additives or filtering.


This Chardonnay is still very young, maybe even in it's closed fase, but if you allow it some time to open up (over an hour in a decanter, possibly longer) this wine will evolve into a beautiful, deep and rich wine, with a far away smoky, reductive note but mostly a browned butter, biscuit subtlety (!) on the front of the pallet. Not a overripe buttery wine at all, let's be clear, this is mineral elegance.
