Variety

Chardonnay

The Dorien cuvée is the most reticent and complex of Stéphane's cuvées. The wine needs time in the bottle in order to express its full potential as an epic, rich, and structured wine. The first release of Dorien is a single vintage (2014) and was disgorged in 2020. Future bottlings will be from the perpetual solera of the Hautes-Mottes vineyard, starting in 2014.
