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 2017 : After a classic winter, spring settled down with warm températures but a cool weather in April slackened down the evolution of the vines. May was rainy and was followed by a warm summer with heat waves. However, a few thunderstorms épisodes brought enough rain to allow the maturation of the grapes to continue. The harvest started early september with an excellent sanitary level of the grapes. The white wines are well-balanced and give off very pure aromas of citrus fruit mixed with pale fleshed fruit.
Tasting : Pale yellow colour. Floral fragrances mixed with aromas of citrus fruit. Delicate touch of minerality. Well-balanced and complex. Dense and tight texture. Long and refreshing aftertaste with a salty tinge.
Food pairing : Fish, cooked pork meat, "charcuteries" ("jambon persillé"), white meat and some goat cheeses.
