Food Pairings for Capture Chardonnay Ma Vie Carol
With multi-generational experience from Château Latour and a personal history in making wine in Burgundy, our winemaking team understands the methods behind crafting classic French-style Chardonnay with freshness, balance and finesse, as well as extraordinary aromatic intensity from hillside grapes. After a meticulous hand-sorting and de-stemming, the grapes are gently pressed using a precise press program and fractioning, a result of old Burgundian traditions and years of research. After a quick cold settling, the clean juice is fermented in French oak barrels at about 60° F by a specific selection of Saccharomyces yeast to emphasize the potential offeredby our terroir. The fully fermented wine is aged sur lie for 11 months, with extensive stirring during the first five months to improve its balance and mouth-feel.
Fermentation in French oak barrels and ageing on the lees enhance the aromatic complexity, with aromas of white peaches, fresh apricots, and honeysuckle. The minerality of this Chardonnay is due to the terroir and altitude of our vineyard. The well balanced, creamy texture, yet fresh elegant mouth-feel and lingering finish confer to this wine its PulignyMontrachet like style.
