Premier Cru

Our Battonage Chardonnay is composed in a classical Burgundian style. Fresh fruit flavors of pear and apple are complemented by light notes of buttery toasted oak, underlined by a distinctive mineral character. It was aged on the lees in small French and Hungarian oak barrels, resulting in a Chardonnay that has an elegant freshness, vivid acidity, and a long, harmonious nish.

Other Notes

This wine pairs phenomenally with brie cheese, as noted by Németh Ági of hungarianwines.eu: "With a fairly high fat content, Brie’s primary character is rich and gooey. Chardonnay has plenty of body to match that creamy sensation. Plus, its bright acidity will cleanse the palate to keep the richness from becoming too overwhelming. We say: Kovács Nimród" Source: https://hungarianwines.eu/brie-cheese-with-hungarian-wines/
