Grape Variety : Chardonnay
Soil : Clay and limestone
Site : Our 2 hectares of Premiers Cru vineyard "Les Chenevottes" is located next door to the famous Terroir "Le Montrachet". The soil is mostly constituted of clay and limestone with the famous stone of Chassagne and is clearly mineral. The vineyards have a peculiar aspect. They are constituted of small blocs entangled into each other. With its East exposure, on the road to Saint Aubin, this plot benefits from the fresh air which conveys to the wine very pure and refreshing aromas.
The Vintage 2009 : After a cold winter and a beautiful spring, the hot summer was interrupted by stormy intervals which fortuitously took place when needed and thus facilitated growth and good maturation of the grapes. Harvest began early September with excellent weather conditions. Aging in oak during 11 months.
Tasting : Delicate gold colour. Floral fragrances mixed with aromas of mango and fresh honey. Subtle minerality. Straightforward and taut. Very pure aromas. Well-shaped acidity and well-defined minerality. Subtle oak note. Good persistence with a refreshing and saline finish.
Food pairing : To be enjoyed with "foie gras", seafood and all sorts of cheeses.
