Grape Variety : Chardonnay
Soil : Clay and limestone
Site : Côte Chalonnaise, Côte d'Or and more specifically Côte de Beaune.
The Vintage 2020 : After a very mild winter, spring arrived with warm temperatures in March which engendered a very quick and sustained growth of the vines. After a very short frost episode early May with no consequence in the vineyards, a mild weather with some rains settled down until end of June. Summer was punctuated in July by several and quite long heat waves. Vineyards with a clay soil were less affected by the low level of rainfalls during spring and by the summer heat. The harvest in Burgundy started around August 20, which was historically early for the region.
Tasting : Pale gold colour. Aromas of pale fleshed fruit (apple) mixed with a hint of minerality. Well-structured, precise and straightforward. Refreshing aftertaste.
Food pairing : Pâté, fish, charcuterie, and many goat cheeses.
