Vineyard

This wine is a blend of two parcels, which are situated near the village of Meursault. One of the parcels is made up of predominantly red clay, whereas the other has very stony soil. The vines are between 50-60 years old.

Vinification

After harvesting hand, carried-out when the grapes have reached full maturity, the grapes are gently pressed in a pneumatic press. The must is settled overnight and put into barrels, 30% new oakThe fermentation starts naturally using indigenous yeast and bacteria.  After being racked 14 months later, the wine undergoes a fine filtration using a membrane filter of 5μ and is then bottled by gravity.

Tasting note

This buttercup-coloured Chardonnay releases aromas of toast, fresh hazelnuts, as well as oaky notes due to its 14 months barrel aging. On the palate, the mellow oak gives the wine a fat, smooth texture along with good length.

Aging

8 to 10 years (stored in the right temperature and humidity conditions).
