Grape Variety : Chardonnay
Soil : Clay and limestone
Site : In the very heart of the appellation, on the upper part of the hill of Corton above the villages of Pernand Vergelesses and Aloxe Corton
The Vintage 2014 : After a cool and rainy winter and a frost episode in April, the warm and dry weather in spring was perfect for the flowering. In July and August the weather was more demanding. It became fine again early September with a true indian summer which enabled a perfect maturation for the grapes. The harvest took place mid September under a bright sunshine. The white wines develop very pure zesty aromas mixed with floral fragrances. Aging in oak casks during 13 months.
Tasting : Bright gold colour. Fragrances of citrus blossom mixed with aromas of pale fleshed fruit on a hint of minerality. Complex with a palate coating texture and a well-integrated minerality. Long and intense finale.
Food pairing : Seafood, foie gras, fish in a creamy sauce, crayfish. Particularly great with a selection of French cheeses (Comté, Epoisses...).
