Aromas of pear and pineapple with an ample and complex palate and a finish in minerality. To be appreciated young or also when older, depending on one's personal taste.

Vintage

A year of all the dangers! A summer period in name only, as it was cold and damp through the months of June, July and August. Cryptogamic diseases were stalking us and would finish by getting the better of certain of our parcels. Bio-dynamic growing demands at such moments a lot of anticipation and effort. We were to prise these teachings from our errors and it was thus that we were to succeed in overcoming climatic problems in 2011. The wines tend towards freshness, very intense in aromatic terms and delicious in their youth. The Grands Crus show themselves to be very long and complex. The whites are majestic and, as everyone knows, Chardonnay likes freshness and emphasizes terroir in such years. The crop was very small in yield, hardly 50% of a normal year.
