Grape Variety : Chardonnay
Soil : Clay and limestone
Site : Monthelie is a little village, nested between between Volnay and Meursault
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 : Bright gold colour. Floral fragrances mixed with aromas of green apple and fresh honey on a hint of vanilla. Well structured. Very precise with a well-integrated oak note. Long and elegant finish.
Food pairing : Seafood, fish, white meat and some goat cheeses.
