Grape Variety : Chardonnay
Soil : Clay and limestone
Site : South of Burgundy, in the heart of the Mâconnais region, the area of production is located on the villages of Fuissé, Solutré-Pouilly, Vergisson and Chaintré.
The Vintage 2006 : The weather at the start of summer was quite demanding. However, the sun appeared at the end of August and continued throughout September. The harvest commenced in mid-September in perfect conditions. Careful selection of grapes in the vineyard and winery have produced beautiful white wines with fantastic acidity. Aged in French oak for 8 months.
Tasting : Pale yellow color. Very fresh citrus, white flower and mineral aromas. The characteristics of white flowers persist on the palate. The body is excellent with delicate acidity and a long, refreshing finish.
Food pairing : Fish, cooked pork meat, "charcuteries" ("jambon persillé"), white meat and some goat cheeses.
