The Vintage 2010 : After a very cold winter and a demanding spring, the hot summer was regularly interrupted by cold and rainy intervals which early September gave way to a bright and warm weather, that speeded up the maturation of the grapes. Harvest began in the last days of September under a bright sunshine. The white wines are tense with a tight texture underlined by a mineral overlay and an outstanding acidity. Aging in oak during 13 months.
Tasting : Bright gold colour. Very fresh aromas of grape fruit and white pear mixed with fresh honey with a hint of vanilla. Complex and well crafted. Very pure fruit. Well-defined minerality. Delicate oak note. Long and refreshing aftertaste.
Food pairing : Foie gras, seefood, fish in a creamy sauce, white meat and a variety of regional cheeses, in particular Époisses, Roquefort and Munster.
