The Vintage 2008 : 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 has produced very pure white wines, well-balanced with fantastic acidity. Aged in oak during 11 months.
Tasting : Bright gold colour. Delicate floral fragrances mixed with pale fleshed fruit (apple) and fresh honey with a hint of vanilla. Complex and well crafted. Very pure fruit. Well-defined minerality. Delicate oak note. Good persistence.
Food pairing : Foie gras, seefood, fish in a creamy sauce, white meat and a variety of regional cheeses, in particular Époisses, Roquefort and Munster.
