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 2007 : After a very warm 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 north 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 with regular batonnage (stirring of the lees in the barrel) have produced very pure white wines, well-balanced with fantastic acidity. Aged in oak during 12 months.
Tasting : Bright gold colour. Floral fragrances mixed with aromas of citrus fruit and fresh honey. Subtle minerality. Well-structured, straightforward and deep. Very pure fruit aromas. Delicate oak note on a well-integrated minerality. Good persistence
Food pairing : Seafood, fish grilled or "en sauce" as well as some mild cheeses.
