Pont Neuf Pont Royal 2016
Due to this even-handed growing season, there is a purity of varietal and vineyard characters in the 2016 Chardonnay. The 2016 “Pont Royal” reveals beeswax, honeycomb, citrus, fresh lemon aromas and ﬂavors with a perfect compliment of minerality. There is a superior silky texture that is only experienced in Premier and Grand Cru wines in Burgundy. These are characteristics that we have come to identify with “Pont Royal”.
We employed 80% new oak from the Vosges forest, contributing the delicate toast and vanilla aromas and playing perfectly with the bright citrus notes; more hallmarks of this single vineyard. Barrel-fermented, aged on the lees and bottled unﬁned and unﬁltered, this natural fermentation showcases the vineyard and the vintage. Anything else assumes a supporting role.
One Hundred cases produced.
