Wine maker notes
The Vines:
This Bourgogne Chardonnay is made from a vineyard very close to Meursault-Charmes with 20+ year old vines. Single Guyot pruning is performed (short pruning), double de-budding, trellised vines, and green harvest when necessary.

The Soil:
The vineyards of the Côte de Beaune are planted along a narrow strip of land less than 3 miles (5km) wide, with the most favored sites being on the limestone slopes that form the backbone of the region. The mineral-rich soils and sunny exposure here make for excellent terroir, considered by many to be the best in the world for high-quality Chardonnay.

Grape Varietal: 100% Chardonnay

The process starts with a simple pressing of the whole bunches of Chardonnay grapes. The grape juice is then fermented in oak barrels where it remains right up until bottling. A battonage of the lies is done every 15 days along with topping up of the barrels.

Aging: In oak barrels from Allier. Before bottling, the wine goes through a cooling down in a cold room if necessary.

Tasting Notes:
This is a wine lacking in pretension; it has a pleasant bouquet of citrus, peach, lemongrass, and white flowers. On the palate, this wine has a creamy texture and subtle notes of toasted nuts. Well-balanced with a delicate acidity.

Food Pairings:
Pairs beautifully with escargots, fish, and risotto
