Préjugés – It is not in my nature to raise a white wine in wood. Barriques really aren’t my thing.. But having a taste for contradiction and experimentation, I have found that this type of “elevage” lends itself well to a crisp Chardonnay with mineral notes. This experiment was quite a revelation to me! As they say, only fools never change their opinions! Signed, a not so stupid winemaker.
