    The hard Comblanchian limestone which disappears deep underground around Nuits-Saint-Georges reappears here where, as one moves southward, red wines give way to whites. Nowhere in the Côte de Beaune does the Chardonnay grape do better than it does here.

2013
  • Characteristic

    After the challenges thrown with the vintage 2012, we were hoping for a peaceful 2013.But capricious Mother Nature had other ideas. Defying all weather forecasts, she never let up. After a long winter, a gloomy spring and a fine, providential summer, our pickers had to wait until the end of September to take up secateurs.

  • Wine-food pairing

    Noble and fine-textured fish or meat, joints of veal or poultry in white sauce, grilled lobster, crawfish, king prawns in sauce - dishes, blue cheeses and foie gras.

  • Tasting note

    Its aromatic power and exceptional balance between opulence and acidity make it an aristocrat among burgundies. High tension in the mount, oaky characteristics well integrated. A rich and soft wine !
