Varietal : Chardonnay
Age of vines : 35 years
Area : 1,90 Hectare
This wine is made of a blend from two terroirs. The first, known as “Sur La Roche”, is
mainly limestone, in the form of surface scree over a subsoil of clay shale. Situated on a
plateau 300 meters above sea level, the late ripening results in wines with a good
sugar/acidity balance. The second plot, known as “En Bille Folland”, is on soil
composed of clay from the Triassic. With much less limestone influence, it produces
supple wines with breadth.
The wine :
Vinification is carried out in temperature-controlled stainless steel vats to preserve all
the freshness and delicacy of the Chardonnay. The aim is to preserve the fruit, and
bring out the best in the wine. It is then aged for nine months before being gently
filtered before bottling.
This wine puts the accent on the fruit, with a lovely crispness and good minerality. The
nose reveals tangy notes of very ripe lemons; in the mouth, it has a charming vigor
with a refreshing side. This cuvée offers an explosion of fruits, and is a true wine for
pleasure. It can be drunk at any time of day.
Food and wine combinations :
An ideal accompaniment for oysters or any other shellfish, its crisp freshness also
makes it a delightful apéritif wine.
This wine should be drunk young to fully appreciate the power of its fruity aromas. It
can be kept for 3 or 4 years in the cellar
