2016 LuLu Vigneron L'Etoile Chardonnay Savagnin
Ludwig Bindernagel, from Bavaria, and Nathalie Eigenschenck, from Paris, started their journey into wine in 2000.
Neither of them had any experience or formal education as winemakers prior to opening their own winery, nor did they come from vigneron families. Ludwig studied viticulture remotely while working as an architect in Paris, and ultimately decided to leave to pursue his passion for viticulture and wine production. This blend of Savignan 60% and Chardonnay 40% is all from the l’Etoile AOC. The vineyards are west facing and vines are 35 years old. The wine is matured for almost two years and wine is allowed to undergo subtle oxidisation. This wine is textural and rich.
