Grape Variety : Chardonnay
Soil : Limestone with clay, white marl and silica.
Site : The vineyards of "Clos Saint Jean" are located on mid slope immediately above the village of Chassagne-Montrachet. It ranks among the best Premiers Crus of this village.
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 13 months
Tasting : Bright gold colour. Intense Aromas of exotic fruit (mango), grilled almond and toasted brioche mixed with a hint of minerality and enhanced by a delicate vanilla note. Elegant and well-balanced. Tight and precise. Well-integrated minerality and delicate oak note. Good persistence.
Food pairing : To be enjoyed with fish (salmon), seafood and some goat cheeses.
