Grape Variety : Chardonnay
Soil : Clay and limestone
Site : In the Northern part of the Côte de Beaune, in the commune of Pernand Vergelesses.
The Vintage 2002 : The harvest took place at the end of September. Excellent weather conditions prevailed in August and September, hence the good quality of the grapes. A severe pruning had been carried out in July 2002 to limit yields.
Tasting : Pale gold colour. Floral fragrances mixed with citrus fruit aromas (grapefruit) and honey on a hint of vanilla. Crisp, fresh and well-balanced. Good aromatic complexity enhanced by a beautiful minerality. Long finish
Food pairing : Seafood, grilled fish as well as some goat cheeses.
