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 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. Vinification : after a mild pressing, the wines are aged in wooden casks in our XVth century cellars for 12 - 14 months. Moderate use of new oak.
Tasting : Pale gold color. Fragrances of citrus blossom mixed with aromas of pale fleshed fruit and wet stone. Complex and concentrated. Tight texture with a very pure fruit. Well integrated acidity and subtle oak note. Generous and well-balanced finish.
Food pairing : Seafood, foie gras, fish in a creamy sauce, crayfish. Particularly great with a selection of French cheeses (Comté, Epoisses...).
