Nose with notes of mirabelle, white tea, bergamot... Both rich and sharp, perfect balance between the fruit, the tension and the minerality. Mouthwatering on the palate, very beautiful length. A big favorite during the tasting, a belgian wine that is worth a Grand Bourgogne!
Peter Colemont is the figurehead of Belgian wine, famous for his Clos d’Opleeuw. The young man has been growing his passion for Chardonnay since he’s been sipping on Grands Bourgognes from the age of 16. Gratuated in chemistry, biology, geography and economics, he started his path as a school teacher. This was without counting on his love for wine... He then gained his experience when he worked for top estates in Côte d’Or, at Domaine de l’Arlot and Domaine Roulot. Which resulted in Peter coming back to his land to plant his own vine stocks! The coming-together with La Falize has been instinctual: this big estate (more than 200 ha of forestry and farmland) dedicated to vegetable growing, preservation of the biodiversity and replanting of trees, perfectly matches Peter’s values. On the viticultural side, the vines are pampered by Sylvain Pellegrinelli, the head of culture at Domaine Lefaive, no less... Indeed, the cuvée is often mistaken for a Puligny-Montrachet!
