La Chaume 2018

La Chaume 2018

$62.00 Sale Save
Despite 2018 being an early and warm vintage, it provided conditions for optimal maturity of the grapes during harvest. The result was a good concentration of the juices at pressing. La Chaume demonstrates a beautiful roundness and freshness making it already accessible in its youth. Although ageing would help to further develop the aromas of this elegant example of oaked chardonnay from the côte chalonnaise. 

Intense aromas of caramel, pineapples and coconut flesh plus a nice saline finish makes it a beautiful pairing with grilled vegetables, Thai styled crab cakes and grilled fish on a midsummer night. 

Drink now and serve at 12°C or cellar for 8-10 years.

Domaine Lefort is Racine Wines Co.’s first partnership in Burgundy. After 3 years in the industry, we decided that it was about time we stepped into this prestigious winemaking region and bring you what it has to offer. Founded on 1st July 2010 by David Lefor, David initially started his career practicing medicine but soon found himself obtaining a Master’s Degree from the University Institute of Vine and Wine Jules Guyot. David truly believes in always working organically and his produce reflects that. He also dabbles in a ‘little’ furniture manufacturing by upcycling old wine barrels under Oak Design.
