2014 Chardonnay Hautes Cotes de Nuits Burgundy Single vineyard 'Lieu Dieu'
"Burghound indicates that 2014 white Burgundy chardonnays are universally regarded as the best in thirty years."
Tasting Notes by Rob Geddes MW
This bottle of Burgundy from a great white vintage and a subregion known for good value whites is an ideal choice as the weather warms and your mind turns to sea food and summer festivities. Proclaims its Burgundian origins with an aroma full of funky subtle notes, oak flint, wild yeast off setting clean ripe stone fruit. The fruit flows on in the mouth with a silky texture, medium bodied with up front white fruit, subtle mineral spice, spring flower fruit, appealing minerality in the middle palate flavour and savoury drying texture ideal for summer weather. Don’t chill too hard.
Vintage 2014 PHILIP'S FROLIC 'Lieu Dieu' white Burgundy arrives in April: from the vineyard called 'God's Place' it is divine chardonnay
Lieu Dieu’ vineyard lies above the Hautes Côtes de Nuits, north of Beaune in Burgundy or Bourgogne. ‘Lieu Dieu’ means God’s Place and this chardonnay is of that quality. It is an ancient vineyard of old vines which produces some of the best chardonnay of the Hautes Côtes de Nuits. Philip’s Frolic went looking for Bourgogne Rouge and found this chardonnay irresistible and so we had to bring it to you as Philip’s Frolic Bourgogne Chardonnay.
