The appellation

Like a family reunion, this wine brings together the members of one single line of descent, and one single Cistercian terroir. The varietal – Chardonnay – originated in southern Burgundy and takes its name from the Latin word cardonnacum, which describes a place where thistles grow. This shows that like all great varietals, the Chardonnay grape floruishes best on poor soils.
