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 typicality of the Chardonnay. The vines are planted at regular distance of each other which enables deep ploughing of the soil.
The Vintage 2011 : After a very cold winter and a demanding spring, the hot summer was regularly interrupted by 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. Meticulous vinifications and aging have enabled us to tame the vibrant acidity of the white wines. Aging in oak during 14 months.
Tasting : Pale gold colour. Aromas of orchard fruit mixed with wood and spices on a hint of minerality. Complex and well-balanced. Creamy with a coating texture. Firm but well-shaped acidity and a well-integrated minerality. Delicate oak note. Refreshing and mineral finish.
Food pairing : To be enjoyed with "foie gras", seafood, fish and goat's cheese.
