Each vintage, the tasting of individual lots of Chardonnay reveals to Luc Morlet a strictly limited number of barrels with truly outstanding features. These selected barrels are then judiciously blended to compose this magnificent cuvée. Handcrafted using classical Burgundian winemaking techniques, this wine represents our ‘Heart’s Astonishment’ or ‘Coup de Coeur.’ Straw-yellow in colour, it has a complex bouquet of candied lemon, citrus oils, Reinette apple and strong notes of hazelnut and white truffle. Mineral driven on the palate, the mouth feel is rich yet delicate. Seamless and classic, it is wonderfully subtle and long on the finish. With a very high ageing potential, this wine can be cellared for over a decade.
Coup de Coeur is a “sensational Chardonnay” which is “flirting with perfection.
