Altitude and exposure
La Flie: 330 m, South facing // Sous Le Mont: 355 m, East facing // Le Perchy: 340 m, South facing
Silty clay with plenty of limestone.
71% Chardonnay, average age 40 years, Guyot trained // 29% Pinot Blanc, average age 60 years, Guyot trained
10,000 vines / hectare on low trellising
Minimal chemical intervention
Picked by hand at peak maturity, the grapes are carefully sorted and gently pressed. After settling, the must is racked off its lees and into barrels for fermentation.
50%-70% in new oaks barrels, 30%-50% in old oak barrels of one vintage, for 12 to 16 months on the lees. No fining, a single racking and a light filtration before bottling.
Average 5000 bottles per annum
75cl bottles. For larger sizes contact the Domaine at the beginning of the year.
Bright, clear, gold
White flesh fruits, lychees and white flowers
Full, round and generous with a good weight and a smooth ripe structure. The fresh aromas carry through to the finish.
Ideally serve in Burgundy glasses.
Food and wine pairing
Delicious with starters, terrine, pâté, as well as raw fish or shellfish. An older wine will accompany very well a foie gras, white fish dish or cheeses.
