Grape Variety : Chardonnay

The Vintage 2012 : After a very cold winter and a cold spring, the weather at the start of summer was quite demanding. It became fine again in the second half of August with hot temperatures. The harvest commenced early September under a bright sunshine. The combination of all those climatic factors has engendered a significant drop of the yields but quality is there. Meticulous vinifications have produced very pure white wines with beautiful aromas.
Tasting : Pale gold colour. Very fresh aromas of fern on a beautiful minerality. Well-structured. Well-integrated minerality. Tense and linear. Well-shaped acidity. Refreshing aftertaste.
Food pairing : Pâté, fish, charcuterie, and many goat cheeses.
