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 2006 : The weather at the start of summer was quite demanding. However, the sun appeared at the end of August and continued throughout September. The harvest commenced in mid-September in perfect conditions. Careful selection of grapes in the vineyard and winery have produced beautiful white wines with fantastic acidity.
Tasting : Bright, even, pale gold. Hints of citrus, hazelnut and lychees. The palate is fleshy and round displaying ripe fruit and a fine acid finish.
Food pairing : To be enjoyed with charcuterie and poultry as well as many different cheeses (comté, goat cheeses...)
