100% Chardonnay “Melon Queue Rouge”. Named after Ganevat’s grandmother, this cuvée comes from vines planted in 1902 on gray marl. As he can make so little of this wine, Ganevat only bottles it in magnums. This is made from a ancient variety of low-yielding Chardonnay known as “Melon Queue Rouge” or “red-tailed” Chardonnay because the stems are red. This is the lushest of Ganevat’s Chardonnays, with exotic notes and mind-bending intensity.
