Jancis Robinson

Juicy and crisp on the palate with a simple, fresh style giving correct lemon and apple fruits as well as a slightly herby note on the finish.

Winemaker Notes

Bright, pale gold. The nose is bursting with notes of fresh fruit, white peach and citrus with a delicate touch of fresh hazelnut. The palate is lively, full, and balanced. Long and refreshing, this is a superb Burgundy.  

 

Situated in the commune of St. Aubin, this single monopole vineyard lies on a south-south-west facing hillside, very near the Chateau's plot "En Vesvau". This predominantly limestone area consists of light clay and sand on top of a limestone fault; the Chardonnay benefits from perfect drainage conditions, resulting in the production of elegant white wines.

Most of the fruit was hand harvested. On arrival at the winery, the grapes underwent modern pneumatic pressing and underwent temperature-controlled fermentation at 20-22°C. The wine was aged on its lees (30% in oak barrels and 70% in oak casks) before being bottled.
