Grape Variety : Chardonnay

The Vintage 2012 : After a very cold winter and a cold spring, the weather at the start of summer was quite demanding. It became fine again in the second half of August with hot temperatures. The harvest commenced early September under a bright sunshine. The combination of all those climatic factors has engendered a significant drop of the yields but quality is there. Meticulous vinifications have produced very pure white wines with beautiful aromas.
Tasting : Pale gold colour. Aromas of grape fruit mixed with floral fragrances on a delicate minerality. Pure. Linear and well-defined. Good structure. Beautiful aromatic combination. Refreshing mineral finish, straight and of good length.
Food pairing : Pâté, lobsters and poultry as well as some goat cheeses.
