Tell me about this wine….

Everything you’d expect from a old-world Chardonnay, and more. An absolutely gorgeous example of Chardonnay that’s a white for those who love white wines with character. She’s a strong independent Chardonnay, certainly not a wallflower. This Grosjean Chardonnay is woody, with notes of vanilla while remaining floral with hints of caramelised pears. Expect an intense colour and big flavours.

Tell Me About This Vineyard….

“Wine is an experience to be shared, it is not an experience to be made alone. When you open a bottle, it’s like reading a new book, you see adventure, you see a story and every bottle is a new story for me”. – Simone Grosjean.

We couldn’t have said it better ourselves. The Italians really are rather poetic, and we love it! Grosjean is a vineyard rooted in heritage and family, that’s a formidable combination when it comes to wine. The vines have been handed down from generation to generation but fast forward to the 60’s and the grandfather of Simone took his wine to market. Turns out, it was pretty good, he tells us, better than simply just family table wine. Then from one market to the next, Grosjean Vini grew while the sons and daughters continued to innovate and experiment with wines, turning this vineyard into one that takes heritage and makes art. Simone tells us, they make French wines in the Italian way, yet they are not limited by history and French wine culture, they can turn all the good parts of French wines, the legacy, the experience and, with Italian style, create new, fresh and exciting wines that are almost “new world” in their spirit, that can reach all corners of the world. To enjoy a bottle of Grosjean wines is to have a little slice of this family in your heart.

Serve With…

This Chardonnay has a dream pairing in a cheese latter of course! Perhaps a cheese platter served as dessert for those who don’t have a sweet tooth. Make sure that platter has walnuts, maybe some honey too, that will really amplify the flavours of the wine.
