Grape Variety : Chardonnay
Soil : Marly limestone with silt of clay
Site : This vineyard of 1.90 hectare is ideally located on mid-slope close to the hill of Corton-Charlemagne. Same soil structure and height as its famous neighbour. The only difference is the East exposure of the "Caradeux" which makes of this plot an exceptional "terroir" providing unique mineral characteristics.
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. Aging in oak casks during 11 months.
Tasting : Pale colour. Mineral with very subdued aromas in its youth. Taut and precise with salty notes. Sappy wine true to its terroir.
Food pairing : To be enjoyed with seafood, fish, and mild cheeses.
