(2015) Another 100% Chardonnay wine that spent 36 months on the lees, the dosage is also similar at 7.5g/l and the alcohol is again 12.5%. A small, family-owned company founded 1998, Franca Contea's 2009 is yeasty and toasty, more developed than the 2011 Ferghettina understandably, with a touch of bruised apple and rotted orange, that's much more attractive than it sounds. Nice mineral inflections on the palate, sour apples but really lemony and racy in the finish.Le Langhe of York was listed as a stockist.
