  • Soil Type: The vineyards for this Chardonnay thrive in Burgundy's diverse soils, predominantly composed of limestone and clay, interspersed with marl. This calcareous foundation is pivotal in imparting the wine with its notable minerality and depth, while the clay elements contribute to the wine's body and texture.

  • Elevation: The gently sloping vineyards are situated at varying elevations, allowing for nuanced expressions of Chardonnay. This variance in altitude influences the grapes' acidity and aromatic profile, ensuring a complex and balanced wine.

  • Grape Variety: 100% Chardonnay

  • Winemaking: Vincent Couche embraces a natural approach to winemaking, with a focus on minimal intervention to allow the Chardonnay's character to shine through. Fermentation and aging occur in a mix of stainless steel and French oak barrels, a method that enhances the wine's complexity while preserving its fresh fruit qualities. The use of oak is judicious, ensuring that the wood influence complements rather than dominates the wine's profile.

  • Farming Practices: The estate is deeply committed to organic and biodynamic practices, reflecting a profound respect for nature and the ecosystem. These sustainable methods not only enrich the soil but also encourage the vines to root deeply, intensifying the wine's expression of its terroir.

  • Tasting Notes: The 2019 Bourgogne Chardonnay opens with vibrant aromas of golden apple, citrus zest, and a whisper of white flowers, underpinned by a subtle flinty note that speaks to its Burgundian roots. On the palate, it delivers a harmonious blend of crisp acidity and creamy texture, with flavors of lemon curd, pear, crème fraîche and a hint of vanilla from the oak aging. The finish is clean and refreshing, with a mineral streak that begs for another sip.

  • Pairing: This Chardonnay is remarkably food-friendly, pairing seamlessly with a range of dishes. It shines alongside seafood, particularly shellfish, as well as poultry and creamy pasta dishes. Its elegance and acidity also make it a delightful companion to goat cheese and green salads.

In essence, the Vincent Couche Bourgogne Chardonnay 2019 is a celebration of Burgundy's terroir and natural winemaking artistry. It stands as a sophisticated expression of Chardonnay, offering a nuanced and enjoyable experience that is both true to its roots and reflective of the estate's sustainable and thoughtful approach to viticulture.
