Grape Variety : Chardonnay
Soil : Clay and limestone covered with stones.
Site : "Les Perrières" is situated on mid slope on the hill South of Meursault. This Premier Cru Vineyard is considered as the ultimate area in Meursault, combining richness and minerality.
The Vintage 2005 : Harvest took place in the early days of September after a dry and very hot summer after a superb growing season - long and cold winter followed by a rainy and humid spring. Exceptional weather conditions for an exceptional vintage. Full maturation of the grapes and good concentration. Aging in oak casks during 14 months.
Tasting : Bright gold colour. Aromas of citrus fruit mixed with pear and fresh honey enhanced by a subtle minerality and a touch of vanilla. Well-structured and well-balanced, generous with a well-integrated minerality and delicate oak note. Good persistence.
Food pairing : To be enjoyed with lobster, seafood, white meat and some cheeses (Reblochon, Cantal).
