Manoir du Carra La Cuvée des Jean
French Chardonnay can run the gamut from bright and lively to rich and complex, and this example leans closer to the former. If you ordinarily avoid Chardonnay for fear of oak, give La Cuvée des P'tits Jean a try - you'll be pleasantly surprised! Aromas of green apple, pear, and peach combine in this elegant, expressive example.
Medium-bodied but surprisingly fresh on the palate, this follows through from the nose with bright acidity and just the right amount of weight and texture. The finish is clean and energetic, inviting another sip.
Pair with a white-sauce pizza with chicken and onions, or match with oven-roasted halibut served with a lemon cream sauce.
Aromas and Flavours
From Granny Smith to Red Delicious, apple makes for a delightfully crisp aroma.
A romantic picnic in the orchard, with your partner and their favourite white wine.
Fuzzy peach candies, or real-life fuzzy peaches fresh from a fresh B.C fruit stand.
Remember playing with pebbles as a child and giving them a lick out of curiosity?

Handling and Serving
2022 - 2024
Manoir du Carra has been the the Sambardier family for five generations, and their La Cuvée des P'tits Jean is named after the old family tradition of naming the first-born son of each successive generation Jean. Patriarch Jean-Marie Sambardier joined the then-hundred-year-old winery in 1918, and his son Jean purchased the estate outright in 1962. Since then, operations have passed down a further three generations, with each son carrying on his father's work and further refining their understanding of their soil, grapes, and wine. With 34 hectares under vine throughout Beaujolais, the family has a wealth of sites to draw from to create their blends. La Cuvée des P'tits Jean is 100% Chardonnay, and is vinified and aged without the use of oak. Enjoy this refreshing and balanced expression of the world's most popular white grape at a cool 12 C over the next two years.
