Grape Variety : Chardonnay
Soil : Clay and limestone
Site : Côte Chalonnaise, Côte d'Or and more specifically Côte de Beaune with a part of the harvest of young vines of the Domaine.
The Vintage 2005 : Exceptional after a superb growing season - cold winter, rainy spring followed by hot and dry summer. Grapes picked at optimum ripeness and in perfect health, hence a minimum sorting was required.
Tasting : Pale gold colour. Floral fragrances mixed with exotic notes enhanced by a delicate minerality. Very fresh, well-structured and well-balanced. A lot of charm.
Food pairing : Pâté, fish and "charcuterie" as well as some goat cheeses.
