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 2014 : After a cool and rainy winter and a frost episode in April, the warm and dry weather in spring was perfect for the flowering. In July and August the weather was more demanding but it became fine again early September with a true Indian summer which enabled a perfect maturation for the grapes. The harvest took place mid September under a bright sunshine. The white wines develop very pure zesty aromas mixed with floral fragrances. Aging in oak casks during 14 months.
Tasting : Pale gold colour. Fresh zesty aromas mixed with lemon on a hint of vanilla. Complex and well crafted. Firm acidity and minerality. Pure and tight. Long and pure finish.
Food pairing : To be enjoyed with foie gras, grilled fish, white meat and strong cheeses (Epoisses, Roquefort and Munster).
