Grape Variety : Chardonnay
Soil : Mix of limestone and clay.
Site : Four different plots of vineyards from selected "vignerons". Two are located on mid slope for finesse and minerality, the two others are situated around the village for more richness and depth.
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. Aging in oak during 13 months.
Tasting : Pale gold colour. Floral fragrances mixed with aromas of peach and apple on a hint of vanilla. Well crafted. Firm acidity and minerality. Pure and tight. Stylish personality. Long aftertaste with hints of minerality.
Food pairing : To be enjoyed with foie gras, grilled fish, white meat and strong cheeses (Epoisses, Roquefort and Munster).
