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

    This village appellation is much more mineral and fresh than the plot "Les Grands Charons" because of this exposure on a middle-high slope. Very well balanced aromas between citrus, creamy characteristics, minerality and a vibrant acidity. A Soft and delicate wine with a long finish.
