Beautiful vineyard in some of the finest terroir for Chardonnay in the Côte de Beaune. Southeast-facing slope overlooking the village of Puligny-Montrachet.Clay-limestone soil with a high proportion of stones, which is conducive to excellent ripeness.

Vinification

Whole bunches of grapes were handpicked into small crates and pressed in a pneumatic winepress. The juice was cold settled after pressing for 12-14 hours under temperature-controlled conditions. Alcoholic fermentation and ageing took place entirely in oak barrels. 100% malolactic fermentationDuration of barrel ageing : 19 months

Features

Luminous golden green with scintillating yellow gold reflections.Yellow fruit notes (mirabelle plum) mixed with sweet spices and delicate vanilla. Smooth, tender and warm, very slightly toasted. Precise, fine and persistent on the finish with a beautiful salivating sapidity.
