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 2013 : After a long winter and a gloomy spring, the summer was warm and sunny but with intervals of violent hail storms. The harvest took place in the last days of September under a bright sunshine. The difficult weather conditions at the beginning of the year and the hail storms have considerably impacted the yields in most of the wine regions but quality is there. The white wines are tense with citrus fruit aromas and a well-shaped acidity.
Tasting : Pale gold colour. Floral fragrances mixed with refreshing aromas of citrus fruit and fresh honey. Well balanced. Good acidity and well-integrated minerality. Refreshing aftertaste.
Food pairing : Charcuteries, fish and all sorts of mild cheeses.
