Domaine de Villaine Bourgogne Blanc Côte Chalonnaise 'Les Clous Aime' 2020
Since Aubert de Villaine, co-owner and co-director of Domaine de la Romanée Conti, and his wife Pamela purchased the domaine in 1971, Domaine de Villaine has been producing exceptional wines from their home in Bouzeron from the Côte Chalonnaise region of Burgundy.
Les Clous Aimé comes from several parcels located on a south-facing slope of Bouzeron's valley, sheltered from summer's north wind during ripening. The vineyard here is planted with selections of Chardonnay grapes that we have chosen for moderate yields. Les clous Aimé is a vin de garde - it's meant to be aged. It is made from the fruit of old vines on a predominantly limestone terroir, and in its youth displays a pure mineral character. Domaine de Villaine recommend patience with this wine, believing that it only reveals the full scope of its finesse and complexity of aromas after five to seven years.
