Grape Variety : Chardonnay
Soil : Mix of clay and limestone
Site : In the Côte Chalonnaise, South of Côte de Beaune, this Premier Cru "terroir" of Montagny displays the fruit and mineral qualities of Chardonnay.
The Vintage 2014 : After a cool and rainy winter and a frost episode in April, the warm and dry weather in spring was perfect for the flowering. In July and August the weather was more demanding but it became fine again early September with a true Indian summer which enabled a perfect maturation for the grapes. The harvest took place mid September under a bright sunshine. The white wines develop very pure zesty aromas mixed with floral fragrances.
Tasting : Pale gold colour. Delicate floral fragrances mixed with aromas of citrus fruit. Delicate minerality. Well structured. Precise and taut with a well-defined minerality. Long and refreshing aftertaste.
Food pairing : Suitable for most occasions. Food parings include pâté, lobsters and poultry, as well as many goat cheeses.
