Grape Variety : Chardonnay
Soil : Clay and limestone
Site : The climat is ideally located nearby the so famous Montrachet and Chevalier Montrachet, the South Est exposure is excellent as well. The high proportion of clay gives to the wine a specific minerality which underlines the typicity of the Chardonnay. The vines are planted at regular distance of each other which enables deep ploughing of the soil.
The Vintage 2010 : After a very cold winter and a demanding spring, the hot summer was regularly interrupted by cold and rainy intervals which early September gave way to a bright and warm weather, that speeded up the maturation of the grapes. Harvest began in the last days of September under a bright sunshine. The white wines are tense with a tight texture underlined by a mineral overlay and an outstanding acidity. Aging in oak during 12 months.
Tasting : Pale gold colour. Aromas of peach and kiwi fruit mixed with hazelnut on a hint of minerality. Complex and concentrated. Creamy with a coating texture underscored by a firm acidity and a well-shaped minerality. Elegant oak note. Refreshing and mineral finish.
Food pairing : To be enjoyed with "foie gras", seafood, fish and goat's cheese.
