The Vintage 2007 : After a very warm spring, the weather at the start of summer was quite demanding. It became fine again from the end of August with much sun and a north wind, which aided concentration of flavours. The harvest commenced in mid-September in perfect conditions under an Indian summer. Careful selection of grapes in the vineyard and winery with regular batonnage (stirring of the lees in the barrel) have produced very pure white wines, well-balanced with fantastic acidity. Aged in oak during 13 months.
Tasting : Bright gold colour. Aromas of exotic fruit (mango) mixed with almond and honey with a hint of vanilla. Beautiful structure. Very pure fruit. Mineral with delicate hints of oak. Long and linear finish.
Food pairing : Foie gras, seafood, fish in a creamy sauce, white meat and a variety of regional cheeses, in particular Époisses, Roquefort and Munster.
