Les Bodines is one of the top vineyards in Arbois and the grapes for this wine are grown by a young protégé of Fabrice Dodane who is now a stellar producer in his own right, Julien Crinquand.
Like most of Dodane’s whites, this wine is aged in large (5-600L), 33% new French oak barrels.
Dodane’s deft touch in the cellars brings out the subtle elegance and layering of minerals, spice and clear crystalline fruit aromatics. A minor correction of SO2 at bottling helps preserve the vibrancy that is unique to Chardonnay grown in this dynamic growing region.
