Grape Variety : Chardonnay
Soil : Clay and limestone
Site : South of Burgundy, in the heart of the Mâconnais region, the area of production is located on the villages of Fuissé, Solutré-Pouilly, Vergisson and Chaintré.
The Vintage 2013 : After a long winter and a gloomy spring, the summer was warm and sunny but with intervals of violent hail storms. The harvest took place in the last days of September under a bright sunshine. The difficult weather conditions at the beginning of the year and the hail storms have considerably impacted the yields in most of the wine regions but quality is there. The white wines are tense with citrus fruit aromas and a well-shaped acidity.
Tasting : Pale yellow color. Very fresh aromas of white fruit (white peach) mixed with almond. Subtle minerality. Well-balanced structure. Deep texture. Delicate minerality. Tense acidity. Long and generous finish.
Food pairing : Fish, cooked pork meat, "charcuteries" ("jambon persillé"), white meat and some goat cheeses.
