About This Wine
This Jura Chardonnay presents itself as the hybrid offspring of Chablis and Macon, a union of polar opposite Burgundian styles.
Rich with peach and pineapple, yet at the same time austere, with a distinct mineral edge, it a fresh, yet firm wine. Really, a juxtaposition within itself, combining contrasting elements to create something with the sum greater than the parts; gestalt.
We love Chardonnay in general, we love Chablis especially, but we really love this, as it combines so many elements of the broad variations of this grape in one unique offering.

it was in 2008, when they took over the estate of Richard Delay, in the heart of Jura, that the story of Champ Divin (Divine Field) begins.
