Grape Variety : Chardonnay
Soil : Clay and Limestone
Site : South of Burgundy, in the heart of the Mâconnais region, the area of production is located on the villages of Fuissé, Solutré-Pouilly, Vergisson and Chaintré.
The Vintage 2009 : After a cold winter and a beautiful spring, the hot summer was interrupted by stormy intervals which fortuitously took place when needed and thus facilitated growth and good maturation of the grapes. Harvest began early September with excellent weather conditions.
Tasting : Pale yellow color. Intense aromas of mango and pear mixed with fresh honey. Subtle minerality and delicate vanilla note. Deep and generous. Tight texture. Delicate minerality and tense acidity. Long and refreshing finish.
Food pairing : Fish, cooked pork meat, "charcuteries" ("jambon persillé"), white meat and some goat cheeses.
