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 2017 : After a classic winter, spring settled down with warm températures but a cool weather in April slackened down the evolution of the vines. May was rainy and was followed by a warm summer with heat waves. However, a few thunderstorms épisodes brought enough rain to allow the maturation of the grapes to continue. The harvest started early september with an excellent sanitary level of the grapes. The white wines are well-balanced and give off very pure aromas of citrus fruit mixed with pale fleshed fruit.
Tasting : Pale gold colour. Delicate fragrances of fern mixed with aromas of citrus fruit on a hint of minerality Well balanced. Well-integrated acidity. Refreshing aftertaste.
Food pairing : Charcuteries, fish and all sorts of mild cheeses.
