Grape Variety : Chardonnay
Soil : Mix of clay and limestone
Site : On the hill in the heart of Côte Chalonnaise, the "terroirs" of Rully are perfectly suited for Chardonnay.
The Vintage 2015 : After a cold winter and a mild spring, the weather conditions in summer (with important differences of temperature between day and night from August onwards) were ideal and enabled a perfect maturation of the grapes. The harvest took place mid September under a bright sunshine. The white wines develop aromas of exotic fruit mixed with floral fragrances. Partial aging in oak during 9 months.
Tasting : Pale gold colour. Delicate floral fragrances (acacia) mixed with exotic fruit aromas and fresh honey. Delicate hint of minerality. Tight, well-balanced and precise. Beautiful fruit combination. Persistant aftertaste. GUIDE BETTANE & DESSEAUVE 2018 : SCORE 15/20
Food pairing : To be enjoyed with charcuterie and poultry as well as many different cheeses (comté, goat cheeses...)
