Les Cotes Chardonnay, Yves Duport
Yves and Lucie Duport look after 12 hectares of vines located in the region of Bugey, Western France. They have been farming organically/biodynamically since 2007. Their focus is on Pinot Noir, Gamay, Chardonnay, Mondeuse and Altesse, the traditional varietals of this small and relatively new AOC Bugey appellation. They are certified by Ecocert.

Tasting Notes Textured, rich yet unoaked Chardonnay with a beautiful floral nose of citrus and white peach orchards. A touch of minerality on a long, superb finish.
