Tasting notes for the Bourgogne Chardonnay 2014 - Arnaud Ente

  • EYE: This Bourgogne Chardonnay has a bright golden yellow color, slightly evolved with some amber reflections.
  • NOSE: Delicate aromas of white-fleshed fruits such as cooked apple and poached pear blend with hints of honey and vanilla. There are also nuances of toasted hazelnuts and bread, adding an extra aromatic dimension.
  • MOUTH: This wine reveals itself as both round and fresh. The texture is velvety with a good concentration. Ripe stone fruit flavors, such as peach and apricot, harmoniously blend with notes of butter and French brioche. A subtle mineral character brings freshness and balance to the whole. The finish is long and offers a pleasant touch of bitterness.

 

In short: The Bourgogne Chardonnay 2014 by Arnaud Ente is an evolved and elegant white wine. Its complex aromas, velvety texture, and balance make it a beautiful expression of Burgundian Chardonnay. It harmoniously pairs with noble fish, seafood, and roasted poultry. With its long finish and aging potential (you can safely cellar it for another 2 to 3 years if you're looking for a more complex evolution), it is a wine that will delight enthusiasts of evolved and refined white wines.

An artist of the vineyard in Meursault

 

Elected "Man of the Year" by the Bettane & Desseauve wine guide in 2012, Arnaud Ente still deserves the title. According to critic Michel Bettane, his white wines are "the most advanced [...] in the entire world when it comes to Chardonnay." The winemaker, who was also nicknamed the Rising Star of Meursault for a few years, is now considered to be one of the greatest artists of the vineyard in the Côte de Beaune.

With the help of his wife Marie-Odile, his son Pierre, and his two employees, Arnaud Ente takes care of his 4.5 hectares of vineyard the way he would his garden. Although, you need to understand that the man is a true perfectionist (and an inspiration to his brother Benoît). He strives for balance, in all things. Arnaud Ente not only seeks to produce the purest wines possible, he is also constantly trying to find a fragile equilibrium between tension and texture. Acidity and volume.

The concept of precision is very close to his heart. Everything is adjusted and calibrated round the clock... from picking the grapes to pruning the vines. Furthermore, respecting the Burgundy terroir is a real duty for him. Which explains why the yields are extremely low. Of course, Arnaud Ente only uses organic methods in his vineyard (he is a proud recipient of the French "Agriculture Biologique" certification).
