Grape Variety : Chardonnay
Soil : Clay and limestone
Site : Three plots of vineyards from selected "vignerons", ideally located in the heart of the village of Chassagne Montrachet - close to the Premiers Crus area. South, South-East orientation.
The Vintage 2010 : After a very cold winter and a demanding spring, the hot summer was regularly interrupted by cold and rainy intervals which early September gave way to a bright and warm weather, that speeded up the maturation of the grapes. Harvest began in the last days of September under a bright sunshine. The white wines are tense with a tight texture underlined by a mineral overlay and an outstanding acidity. Aging in oak during 15 months.
Tasting : Pale gold colour. Delicate floral fragrances mixed with citrus fruit. Delicate vanilla note on a hint of minerality. Generous and complex. Very pure fruit. Well-shaped acidity. Long and mineral finish.
Food pairing : To be enjoyed with foie gras, grilled fish, white meat and strong cheeses (Epoisses, Roquefort and Munster).
