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 displays the fruit and mineral qualities of Chardonnay.
The Vintage 2008 : After a beautiful spring, the weather at the start of summer was quite demanding. It became fine again from the end of August with much sun and a cold wind, which aided concentration of flavours. The harvest commenced in mid-September in perfect conditions under an Indian summer. Careful selection of grapes in the vineyard and winery have produced very pure white wines, well-balanced with fantastic acidity.
Tasting : Pale gold colour. Refreshing floral fragrances mixed with aromas of pale fleshed fruit on a hint of vanilla. Well-balanced, well-structured. Well-integrated acidity with and long and refreshing finish.
Food pairing : Suitable for most occasions. Food parings include pâté, lobsters and poultry, as well as many goat cheeses.
