Terroir

Magnificent terroir of white marls high on the hill-side and facing south. Very calcareous ground, with good drainage, allowing harvests at optimal maturity.

Tasting

The expression of this exceptional white wine is mineral, with white flowers and fruit (peach, apricot). The persistence on the palate is infinite. It is one of the loveliest white wines of Burgundy which may be tasted young and which gains in complexity and richness as the years go by.

Vintage

A no doubt exceptional vintage is in the making. The summer was hot with wet passages abundant in August. We harvest from 1 to 12 September a perfect maturity and in a perfect state of health. Chardonnay are already very expressive, with lovely notes of summer fruits, balanced by an impressive crispness and richness in the mouth. Pinot Noir are showing some intense, bright colors, vintage gourmet with notes of red berries, the tannins are silky and rounded will reveal its full splendor in years to come.
