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. Aged in oak casks for 12 months.
Tasting : Beautiful gold colour. Floral and honey fragrances. Beautiful minerality and delicate oak notes. Complex, well-balanced and concentrated. An elegant combination of fruit and minerality. Long persistence.
Food pairing : Foie gras, seafood, fish in a creamy sauce, white meat and a variety of regional cheeses, in particular Époisses, Roquefort and Munster.
