Château Philippe le Hardi

A new addition to our Burgundy range, Chateau Philippe le Hardi has developed a reputation for making wines that are both sustainably produced and of the highest quality. Their 90 hectare vineyard is farmed according to Terra Vitis principles, with a key emphasis on the promotion of biodiversity. The estate is named after Philippe le Hardi (Philip the Bold), who presided over the estate in the late 14th century. A key figure in the history of Burgundy, and wider French politics, it was Philippe who made a decree in 1395 which banned the planting of Gamay in vineyards and ordered the cutting down and pulling up of any vines that had already been planted. The resultant move to concentrate on the cultivation of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir laid the foundations for the classic wines of Burgundy that we know so well today.

Of particular interest is their Clos la Chaise Dieu Monopole, from the village of Saint Aubin. The predominantly limestone terroir of this area ensures that the vines benefit from perfect drainage conditions. The resultant wine is a pure expression of elegant, Burgundian Chardonnay – just as Monsieur le Hardi would have liked it!

Appealing red

A symposium of berries, cherry, raspberries, blackberries, currants, violet aromas and balsamic hints. On the palate is perfectly balanced with subtle and silk tannins, hearty notes with a lingering aftertaste of spicy hints. Elegant and impeccably structured.
