Originally from Burgundy, the Chardonnay grape is now commonly cultivated in the Aosta region. The noble tannins from selected oaks (toasted in " chauffes" and steam treated), with first and second fermentation on the lees, and continual bâtonnages, give this wine a decidedly complex character. Today Les Crêtes Chardonnay Cuvée Bois is an awarded-winning Italian wine and internationally recognized for its elegance and style.
