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 2012 : After a very cold winter and a cold spring, the weather at the start of summer was quite demanding. It became fine again in the second half of August with hot temperatures. The harvest commenced early September under a bright sunshine. The combination of all those climatic factors has engendered a significant drop of the yields but quality is there. Meticulous vinifications have produced very pure white wines with beautiful aromas. Aged in oak casks during 12 months.
Tasting : Pale gold colour. Delicate floral fragrances mixed with citrus fruit aromas and spices. Beautiful vanilla note. Well-structured and complex. Chunky with a beautiful texture. Very pure fruit. Long and generous aftertaste.
Food pairing : To be enjoyed with foie gras, grilled fish, white meat and strong cheeses (Epoisses, Roquefort and Munster).
