Bietighöfer | Chardonnay Grande Réserve
Step aside Burgundy, this wine will blow your mind
Some of the best wines we have tried all year! Winemaker, Stefan Bietighöfer, brings you a very Burgundian-style German Chardonnay from vineyards only 15 minutes away from the French border. Great French wines (Burgundy’s in this case) taste grounded in a palpable way. Like they are clearly from the earth, but not earthy; rich, but not heavy; flinty, but not sharp. This wine does that with a gorgeously rich peach, sweet Meyer lemon, and pomelo flavor. The creamy mouthfeel washes clean with an invigorating river stone effect.
