Domaine Roulot has always been among the best producers of Chardonnay in Burgundy.
The domaine is now amongst the few whose wines are always sold out even before they are in bottle (and usually at a $450+ price tag!).
Roulot’s wines hailing from Patagonia have the same precision and energy at 1/10th the price.
Piero Incisa della Rochetta is the grandson of the founder of Tenuta San Guido, the producer of Sassicaia, and Chacra is his personal project in northern Patagonia. In 2016, Piero started a new partnership with Jean-Marc Roulot to produce Chardonnay and the rest was history. The scores along tell you that this partnership is nothing short of excellent.

“I love the beautiful aromas of sliced apples, pears and pear blossom. Cookies. Honey. Straw. Full-bodied yet very sleek and polished. Extremely smooth and refined. Hints of cream and lightly toasted nuts and praline. Very, very long and persistent. Fantastic wine made with Burgundy’s famous winemaker, Roulot. Drink now.”
