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 2017 : After a cold winter, spring started with a mix of cold and warm episodes. May and June were quite warm. Summer was warm with several heat waves which brought stormy episodes at the right moment. This enabled the vineyards to follow their normal biological cycle. The harvest started early September, in outstanding conditions with grapes fully ripe and healthy. The white wines are well-balanced and precise.
Tasting : Pale gold colour. Floral fragrances mixed with citrus fruit on a hint of minerality. Well-balanced and precise and tense. Very pure fruit. Long finish.
Food pairing : To be enjoyed with charcuterie and poultry as well as many different cheeses (comté, goat cheeses...)
