Wine Description:
Bernard Mollard, Marc Morey's son-in-law, skillfully practices the art of winemaking with a delicate touch and perfect use of wood. Known for extremely low yields, late malolactic fermentation, and batonnage, Mollard employs new oak judiciously, with less than half of the wines receiving new wood. The domaine's rise to the elite league in the early '90s is credited to Mollard. Patience is essential in ascending to the exclusive circle of importers, but the wait is rewarded. As a direct importer, one discovers the rarity and high market prices contrasted with Morey's surprisingly affordable wines, showcasing the pinnacle of Burgundian Chardonnays. Read more

Body
info
Wine acidity refers to the tartness of a wine, which gives a tingling sensation on the side of the tongue. A metallic-like sharp taste is also associated with high acidity. Sometimes a high level of sweetness, such as in luscious dessert wines, can disguise a high level of acidity. Acidity can range from soft to searing.

Wine tannin gives wine its textural mouthfeel and astringency. Tannin is a natural compound found in grape skins, seeds, and stems. It contributes to the structure and helps to balance out the sweetness of the fruit. Tannins are usually discussed when it comes to red wines, even though some white and rosé wines with certain wine making techniques can also contain tannins.
