Grape Variety : Chardonnay
Soil : Mix of clay and limestone
Site : On the hill in the heart of Côte Chalonnaise, the "terroirs" of Rully are perfectly suited for Chardonnay.
The Vintage 2011 : After a very cold winter and a demanding spring, the hot summer was regularly interrupted by rainy intervals which early September gave way to a bright and warm weather, that speeded up the maturation of the grapes. Harvest began in the last days of September under a bright sunshine.
Tasting : Pale gold colour. Floral fragrances mixed with citrus fruit. Tight and well-balanced. Beautiful aromatic freshness. Long and crisp aftertaste with a delicate minerality.
Food pairing : To be enjoyed with charcuterie and poultry as well as many different cheeses (comté, goat cheeses...)
