Grape Variety : Chardonnay

The Vintage 2017 : After a cold winter, spring started with a mix of cold and warm episodes. May and June were quite warm. Summer was warm with several heat waves which brought stormy episodes at the right moment. This enabled the vineyards to follow their normal biological cycle. The harvest started early September, in outstanding conditions with grapes fully ripe and healthy. The white wines are well-balanced and precise.
Tasting : Pale gold colour. Delicate fragrances of lime blossom mixed with citrus fruit on a hint of minerality. Well-structured and punchy. Well-shaped minerality. Precise and tense on a well-integrated acidity. Refreshing aftertaste.
Food pairing : Pâté, fish, charcuterie, and many goat cheeses.
