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 2006 : The weather at the start of summer was quite demanding. However, the sun appeared at the end of August and continued throughout September. The harvest commenced in mid-September in perfect conditions. Careful selection of grapes in the vineyard and winery have produced beautiful white wines with fantastic acidity. Aged in French oak for 10 months.
Tasting : Bright gold colour. Aromas of mango and almond with fresh honey enhanced by a subtle minerality and a touch of vanilla. Well-structured and well-balanced. Beautiful texture and well-integrated minerality. Delicate oak note. Good persistence.
Food pairing : To be enjoyed with lobster, seafood, white meat and some cheeses (Reblochon, Cantal).
