Chardonnay Domaine D’O, 2020
Haute Vallée de l’Aude
“As son of a winemaker, you might say I have wine in my blood.
Born in the Hospice de Beaune, growing up amongst the Grand Crus of Burgundy until moving down South to the vineyards of Château Canet, meant that vines, grapes and cellars, were never far away.
It was not before long that I spent my summers in the vineyards and early fall in the cellar. Continuing on this path and building my experience, I found myself working the cellars of Mendoza, far from home but not from wine!
The crescendo: Domaine D’O’s 12 hectares in the AOC Limoux. A blend of my Burgundian roots and Languedoc upbringing. Revisiting the Burgundy classics of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, here in the South of France at the piedmont of the Pyrenees, near the source of the river Aude .
Domaine D’O’s first harvest in 2018, marked a new chapter for me. I am looking forward to the future “recolte” hope you enjoy the results as much as I do.
Cheers, ” – Oliver Lemstra- Artisan Winemaker
Grape Varieties: 100% Chardonnay.
This Chardonnay was aged and matured on 35% new oak to add complexity but not masking the beautiful fruit of pear, peach and a little nectarine.
