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 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 11 months.
Tasting : Delicate gold colour. Aromas of white orchard fruit mixed with herbal tea and subtle spice nuances. Generous and well-structured. Very pure fruit. Finely grained texture. Long and intense aftertaste.
Food pairing : To be enjoyed with "foie gras", seafood and all sorts of cheeses.
