Chateau du Chatelard Beaujolais Blanc 2008

External Review by Astor Wines & Spirits:

No, your eyes aren't deceiving you: this is indeed a white Beaujolais. Chardonnay is by far in the minority when it comes to wine production in this region. This one is unoaked, ripe, and pleasantly round in texture. It has also gained incredible concentration from the impressive age of the vines. Give it a try tonight!

The range offered by the Château de Chatelard centers on 8 ha of Fleurie vines and another 20 ha evenly spread over good vineyard plots in Moulin à Vent, Morgon, Beaujolais Blanc and Beaujolais Villages rouge and Beaujolais. Since its creation after the Fifties, the estate has developed a loyal clientele both nationally internationally. The vineyards are well situated - many were planted before 1955 - and give excellent expression of the unique Beaujolais terroirs. This pretty 18th century château has evolved over time, earning its place among the leading properties of the Beaujolais.

This old-vine Beaujolais shows bright red fruit with underlying notes of clay and limestone minerality. Flavors of wild blackberries and currants abound, with a hint of earth just beneath the surface. Bright, lively acidity makes this an excellent food wine.
