Grape Variety : Chardonnay
Soil : Mix of clay and limestone
Site : On the hill in the heart of Côte Chalonnaise, the "terroirs" of Rully are perfectly suited for Chardonnay.
The Vintage 2005 : Exceptional after a superb growing season - cold winter, rainy spring followed by hot and dry summer. Grapes picked at optimum ripeness and in perfect health, hence a minimum sorting was required.
Tasting : Bright gold colour with emerald tinges. Aromas of pale fleshed fruit mixed with honey and enhanced by a beautiful minerality. Refreshing, lively and well-balanced. Good structure enhanced by a delicate minerality. Good persistence.
Food pairing : To be enjoyed with charcuterie and poultry as well as some cheeses (comté, goat cheeses...)
