Grape Variety : Aligoté

The Vintage 2010 : After a very cold winter and a demanding spring, the hot summer was regularly interrupted by cold and rainy intervals which early September gave way to a bright and warm weather, that speeded up the maturation of the grapes. Harvest began in the last days of September under a bright sunshine. The white wines are tense with a tight texture underlined by a mineral overlay and an outstanding acidity.
Tasting : Pale gold colour. Refreshing aromas of herbs enhanced by a subtle minerality. Crisp, well-balanced and mineral. Very refreshing.
Food pairing : Aperitif, mixed salad, and cooked pork meat "charcuteries".
