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 2014 : After a cool and rainy winter and a frost episode in April, the warm and dry weather in spring was perfect for the flowering. In July and August the weather was more demanding. It became fine again early September with a true Indian summer which enabled a perfect maturation for the grapes. The harvest took place mid September under a bright sunshine. The white wines develop very pure zesty aromas mixed with floral fragrances. Aging in oak casks during 13 months.
Tasting : Pale gold colour. Floral fragrances mixed with citrus fruit aromas, white pear and toast notes. Hint of minerality. Complex and well-balanced. Taut and tight. Elegant minerality with a well-integrated acidity. Refreshing aftertaste and long finish.
Food pairing : To be enjoyed with "foie gras", seafood, fish and goat's cheese.
