The wines of Domaine St Pierre once lived in the shadow of their famous contemporaries, Overnoy and Ganevat, but are now rightfully having their moment in the sun. Winemaker Fabrice Dodane has a fasincating history. He began his career studying in Burgundy and came to Domaine St Pierre in the late 80's after a stint working at a local cooperative. Slowly, but surely, he started to make the domaine his own, beginning the conversion to organic growing from 2002. In 2011 he finally had full control, and the results speak for themselves.

Produced by letting the fruit press gently, using only gravity, this 2018 Chardonnay is incredibly elegant. Notes of bright, zippy citrus, ripe melon and stone fruit are complimented by a light, nutty aroma that ties everything together perfectly.
