ÉO Blanc, 2017

available in the Mövenpick online shop:  CHF 29.80/75cl

As elegant as it is impressive, the new “ÉO Blanc” celebrates the best of rich tradition and modern winemaking. Made entirely from carefully selected Zurich Chardonnay grapes, the new ÉO is a stylish accompaniment to special moments. In order to allow the aromas to develop to their fullest, the grapes are left on the vine until late autumn. The ÉO Blanc then matures for several months on the lees in one-year-old Swiss barrels made from Marthalen oak, thereby developing a fascinating complexity. Like its brother, the popular “ÉO Noir” – the new Chardonnay is subject to limited availability.

Tasting notes: Brilliant golden yellow. Seductive citrus and banana notes, accompanied by fine hints of vanilla and toasted white bread. Creamy and soft on the palate. Full-bodied and elegant from full fruit and minerality with refined oak aromas. The long finish slowly melts away and reflects the interplay between initial attack and developing palate.
