Grape Variety : Chardonnay
Soil : Clay and limestone
Site : In the South of Burgundy, in the Mâconnais. An area located between the communes of Mâcon, Lugny and Tournus.
The Vintage 2008 : After a beautiful spring, the weather at the start of summer was quite demanding. It became fine again from the end of August with much sun and a cold wind, which aided concentration of flavours. The harvest commenced in mid-September in perfect conditions under an Indian summer.
Tasting : Pale gold colour. Delicate floral fragrances on a mineral note. Well balanced and crisp. Good acidity and subtle minerality. Refreshing finish.
Food pairing : Charcuteries, fish and all sorts of mild cheeses.
