Louis Tête Coteaux du Lyonnais Antique Bellum Blanc 2018

Louis Tête Coteaux du Lyonnais Antique Bellum Blanc has a brilliant gold colour. The nose reveals fresh aromas of acacia and other white flowers with a hint of honey. Elegant and round in the mouth, balancing a medium body and crisp acidity. Full of fresh grapefruit citrus and peach flavours, revealing hints of hazelnuts and wood on the finish.

100% Chardonnay. The fruit comes from a micro-terroir made up of the best plots in the finest vintages. The vineyard in the Coteaux du Lyonnais AOP enjoys an ideal southern exposure, ensuring maximum fruit ripeness and consistency of quality. The vines grow in sand and granite soils. 

The fruit for this wine comes from Louis Tête's vineyard in the southern most wine growing region in Burgundy, Beaujolais et Lyonnais. At Les Dépôts, a few kilometers from the historic capital of Beaujolais, the Tête family has been creating wines since the beginning of the 19th century.
