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 2013 : After a very cold winter and a demanding spring, the hot summer was regularly interrupted by rainy intervals which early September gave way to a bright and warm weather, that speeded up the maturation of the grapes. Harvest began in early October under a bright sunshine. Aging in oak during 12 months.
Tasting : Pale gold colour. Delicate floral fragrances mixed with yellow fruit and almond. Delicate vanilla note. Well-structured and complex. Tight and taut with a beautiful texture. Very pure fruit. Long with a hint of minerality.
Food pairing : To be enjoyed with foie gras, grilled fish, white meat and strong cheeses (Epoisses, Roquefort and Munster).
