The vineyard for this wine is situated around the village of Meursault, Southern Côte de Beaune, where the soils are clay-rich lime on white marls on slopes facing East-South-East.
Grape variety used in this wine is 100% Chardonnay, which are hand-picked and taken in harvesting cases to the winery as quickly as possible, so as to avoid heat, rain, bruising of the grapes or oxidization. The wine is matured traditionaly for 10 to 16 months without any racking (no change of cask). It is during this period that it gently gains in structure and complexity with the help of periodic “bâtonnage” (stirring-up of lees), malolactic fermentation (natural degradation of the acids) and the exchanges with the barrels (olfactive and oxido-reductive exchanges). Light filtration before bottling completes maturation without damaging the harmony and natural aging potential previously acquired.
The wine is fine pale goldish yellow color. From a background of grilled notes with a little vanilla, its nose develops a nice fruity-floral medley with nuances of white peach and hawthorn. The wine is lengthy on the palate with a hint of sweetness and a well-balanced mineral build.
It is a perfect match with fish and big crustaceans, as well as white meats and poultry in creamy sauces; also strong cheeses including blues.
