Grape Variety : Chardonnay
Soil : Clay and limestone
Site : In the South of Burgundy, in the Mâconnais. An area located between the communes of Mâcon, Lugny and Tournus.
The Vintage 2012 : After a very cold winter and a cold spring, the weather at the start of summer was quite demanding. It became fine again in the second half of August with hot temperatures. The harvest commenced early September under a bright sunshine. The combination of all those climatic factors has engendered a significant drop of the yields but quality is there. Meticulous vinifications have produced very pure white wines with beautiful aromas.
Tasting : Pale gold colour. Refreshing aromas of citrus fruit mixed with fresh honey on delicate a mineral note. Well balanced. Good acidity and well-integrated minerality. Refreshing aftertaste.
Food pairing : Charcuteries, fish and all sorts of mild cheeses.
