The elder citizens of Chardonnay, located not far from Tournus, will tell you that their village provided the name for thefamous Burgundian varietal. All that is certain is that the word “Chardonnay” comes from the Latin “Cardus” which means“thistle,” the spikey plants that grow particularly well on limestone soils. Chardonnay is a village with excellent limestone. Amagnificent wine, with an explosive bouquet, indulgent, guided by the natural energy of the terroir.
