Chardonnay 1066

Chardonnay Clone 1066 
Very low production with loose clusters and prone to millerandage, not widely distributed.

It is of exceptional richness in sugar.
Rich and full on the palate, it is suitable for vinification and aging in barrels.

Very early maturity, it must only be cultivated in order to be harvested for “fin” wines.

Limit to only 10-15% in Grand crus

(ENTAV - small and highly millerandage clusters. Earlier clone, popular for its low production, superior sugar content and quality of wines produced. To be used for high value-added production because of its low yield.)
