Our 2021 Chardonnay was hand-picked into small totes and then whole-cluster pressed. It was partly fermented in French Oak barrels to reveal the complexity of the fruit through the slow breathing process that happens in wood. The rest was fermented and aged in stainless steel to keep the vibrancy and fruitiness. Véronique blended these two portions to create a more delicate wine - Arthur. To Véronique, it’s as if one brought together elements of a pure Chablis and an elegant Meursault.


The grapes were whole cluster pressed, and the juice was fermented and aged in a mix of French oak barrels and stainless steel tanks with 15% new oak. It was bottled in September following the vintage.

This Chardonnay is dense yet understated, with &oral, pear, quince, and spice aromas leading to a neat, vibrant palate.
