Degustation notes

Bright golden yellow colour, a rich and powerful Chardonnay bouquet with notes of spice and quince, vigorous and fragrant on the attack, ample, reminiscent of fresh butter, beautiful aromatic expression, full-bodied and well structured, an interesting, well balanced wine that has character.

Special notes

A family estate of 11 hectares, situated between Lausanne and Geneva, cultivated organically (the Bio bud) since 1994. A dozen different wines are produced. The winery combines tradition and innovation, alternating between stainless steel vats and oak barrels. The Bio bud label is an independent label that belongs to its producers. It forces them to cultivate their entire domain according to organic guidelines. The vineyards are located accross 5 appellations at the heart of the Coast (Luins - Vinzel - Begnins - Coteau deVincy and Tartegnin). The soils are also extremely varied, from limestone to acidic and from light to heavy, allowing a clear distinction between the different areas.

    Nicht zu sauer, leicht und trotzdem mit vollem Aroma, angenehm auf der Zunge. Bio!
    Zu empfehlen.

    Ein wunderbarer Biowein mit kräftigem Bukett, das nach Quitten, Honig und Pfirsich duftet, komplex, am Gaumen viel Fruchtdruck, voluminöse Struktur, vielschichtige Aromatik, harmonisch und langanhaltend im Abgang. Ein Meisterstück von Reynald Parmelin, dem Bio-Pionier aus der Waadt, der bereits 1994 die Domaine de la Capitaine komplett auf Bio umstellte.
