Grape Variety : Chardonnay
Soil : Limestone and clay
Site : The village of Saint Aubin is located between the villages of Chassagne Montrachet and Puligny Montrachet. "Les Pitengerets" is among one of the best Premiers Crus, located close to the famous Chassagne Montrachet.
The Vintage 2011 : After a very cold winter and a demanding spring, the hot summer was regularly interrupted by rainy intervals. Then, it gave way early September 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. Meticulous vinifications and aging have enabled us to tame the vibrant acidity of the white wines. Aging in oak during 13 months.
Tasting : Bright gold colour. Intense aromas of pale fleshed fruit (pear) mixed with almond and honey with a hint of vanilla. Complex and structured. Very pure fruit. Well-defined minerality. Well integrated oak note. Long and refined aftertaste. Score : 17.25 - Decanter - August 2013
Food pairing : Foie gras, seafood, fish in a creamy sauce, white meat and a variety of regional cheeses, in particular Époisses, Roquefort and Munster.
