This product is currently sold out.
Marchesi di Grésy has long been recognised as one of Piemonte's top producers. With four separate estates across Langhe and Monferrato - home of Piemonte's greatest wines -Marchesi di Grésy has 45 hectares of vineyards, with 11 hectares dedicated to the production of Nebbiolo for its flagship Barbarescos, Martinenga Camp Gros and Martinenga Gaiun. The Martinenga vineyard is considered by many to be the best single vineyard in Barbaresco. This breath-taking natural amphitheatre surrounding the winery has been exclusively owned by the di Grésy family since 1797.
Piemonte produces some of the finest, most Burgundian, examples of Chardonnay in Italy. This is one of the best - a complex barrel-aged style, and one of Italy's finest examples of the grape.
Marchesi di Grésy Langhe Chardonnay wine has a ripe, honeyed style with intense hazelnut, nougat, caramel and butter on the nose. A generous silky textured mouth feel is nuanced and savoury with fine citrus and stone fruit characters and taut acidity. Layered and complex with subtle use of oak giving an elegant style with notable minerality. Perfectly balanced, with considerable length. This rich, ripe style is versatile - and will partner full flavoured dishes, such as chicken in creamy mushroom and white wine sauce.
Please note: All case wine orders can take between 7-10 days for delivery.

Marchesi di Gresy Langhe Chardonnay 2018: ” … fragrant and fresh, with aromas of orchard fruit, creamy honey and apple that can be mistaken for nothing else but oak-aged Chardonnay. The wine is softly pliant with a medium-rich texture that feels especially silky and smooth to the palate. This wine hits all the right pleasure spots and is a joy to drink. All that fruit is framed by delicate tones of mineral and spice. 91 points.” Monica Larner, The Wine Advocate (17th June ’21)
