Le Baron Chardonnay

A rich and creamy barrel fermented Chardonnay

This premium wine is made from grapes hand-picked from 25-30 year-old Chardonnay vines on some of our best parcels of land giving concentrated flavours and minerality. Fermented in a combination of new and old 400 litre French oak barrels, each with a different yeast, adds extra complexity to the wine and allows our Head Winemaker to select only from the best barrels to create a wine to rival the world's best Chardonnays.

Ready to drink now this wine will continue to improve in bottle for several years.  

Tasting Notes

A pale yellow/straw colour becoming more golden with age. Delicate floral aromas, classic toasted brioche flavours, crisp acidity and a rich full-bodied mouth make this wine perfect with rich and creamy sauces, white meat and fish dishes.

Reviews

  • This was very nice! Super smooth and mellow, almost creamy or oily. Nice oak, not too much. Would want again! - In vino vertias, vivino
  • Very happy once again - I'm a dedicated repeat customer! - Dmitri T, webshop feedback gathered by Yotpo reviews
  • Try laying down this wine for a few years and it will reward your patience - the 2006 vintage is currently drinking perfectly - buy some if you can find any - Nick Kent, Domaine Saint Hilaire owner
