Domaine Besancenot, Beaune.
Several years ago, Bernard Besancenot made the decision to plant Chardonnay vines in the ostensibly Pinot Noir planted Centvignes 1er Cru vineyard.
The first fruits of his efforts became the excellent 2014 vintage.
A full bodied Chardonnay, richly flavoured and rounded with hints of vanilla from the oak ageing. A lovely wine, which serves to prove his decision to plant the vines all those years ago was a success.
