Grape Variety : Chardonnay
Soil : Mix of clay and limestone
Site : In the Côte Chalonnaise, South of Côte de Beaune, this Premier Cru "terroir" of Montagny enhences the fresh fruit and mineral style of the Chardonnay.
The Vintage 2005 : Exceptional after a superb growing season - cold winter, rainy spring followed by hot and dry summer. Grapes picked at optimum ripeness and in perfect health, hence a minimum sorting was required.
Tasting : Pale gold colour. Very delicate floral fragrances mixed with exotic fruit and enhanced by a good minerality. Well-balanced. Very refreshing, fruity. Well-integrated minerality and long finish.
Food pairing : Pâté, lobsters and poultry as well as some goat cheeses
