The home and cellar of Georges Comte can be found in Émagny, a sleepy village in his native Doubs.
Despite sitting somewhere between the Jura, Burgundy and Alsace, the region is something of a forgotten land for wine. Since 1989 Georges has worked from eight hectares of vines planted over a magnificent terroir akin to Puligny-Montrachet named Le Moutherot where the perfect combination of firm clay and limestone produces wines of great structure, minerality and depth.
This is a Chardonnay that is already incredibly open and detailed. Full and complex, heady with orchard fruits and a touch of spice, it is a wonderful marriage of time, grape and place. Wonderful now, we can’t wait to watch it evolve further over the coming years.
