Powerful oscillating intensity from 60 year old vines and ancient calcaire (limestone). This parish has more limestone that the rest of the vineyard, which makes it the brightest and most acid driven of the bunch.
Aged for 30 months in barrel, the wine has green apple, peach, pear and freshly roasted hazelnuts. It is so brisk, bright, tightly wound and precise. It's crystalline and zings across the palate, finishing mouthwatering and cool despite the richness.
The name "et pourtant" translates as "and yet..." - the kind of je ne sais quoi we deserve from a chardonnay so special.
One for the cellar.
