About this Product

Decelle Villa Hautes-Côtes de Beaune Les Champlain is a white wine from Burgundy made from 100% Chardonnay. The grapes are grown without pesticides and come from the field Les Champlains, which is located just "above" Savigny-lès-Beaune. They are harvested by hand and pressed at Decelle Villa's winery in Nuits-Saints-Georges. The fermentation takes place with the yeast that is naturally found on the grape skins in large barrels (500 litres).

About Decelle-Villa

Olivier Decelle became famous in the wine world for creating Mas Amiel, one of the most appreciated wineries in South France. Later on, he brought life and reputation back to Château Jean Faure from St-Émilion, the neighbour of Cheval Blanc. His love for Burgundy made him purchase land in many appellations and he restored an abandoned cellar in Nutis-Saint-Georges where these handcrafted wines are aged. Decelle-Villa’s unique style is all about finesse and purity. All their wines are certified organic.

About France

French wine is nearly synonymous with fine wine and all things epicurean, France has a culture of wine production and consumption that is deeply rooted in tradition. Many of the world’s most beloved grape varieties originated here, as did the concept of “terroir”—soil type, elevation, slope and mesoclimate combine to produce resulting wines that convey a sense of place.

Accordingly, most French wine is labeled by geographical location, rather than grape variety. So a general understanding of which grapes correspond to which regions can be helpful in navigating all of the types of French wine. Some of the greatest wine regions in the world are here, including Bordeaux, Burgundy, the Rhône and Champagne, but each part of the country has its own specialties and strengths.

About Chardonnay

Chardonnay is a green-skinned grape variety used to make both still white wine and sparkling wine.

Chardonnay grown in cooler regions exhibits racy, crisp flavours like lemon, lime, and green apple, along with flinty or chalky mineral notes. Warmer locations coax out richer flavours like melon, peach and pineapple. Oak can add notes of vanilla, coconut, and spice, while malolactic fermentation leads to a creamy, buttery texture. Chardonnay is typically a dry wine, although some winemakers allow a touch of residual sugar.
