100% Chardonnay from Festigny and Le Breuil, grown on a mix of clay and limestone on south/south west facing aspects. The average vine age is 32 years.
Manually harvested and pressed in pneumatic presses of 2 000 and 4 000 kgs capacity. For the vinification, the plots are kept separated in stainless steel or enamel steel tanks. No malolactic fermentation, and aged one year in oak tuns before ageing in bottle for another 6 years. Disgorged following the lunar calendar.
Very clean and delicate nose, with subtle woody notes. Smooth palate with precision; fresh fruit and toasted almonds.
