  • Characteristic

    The wines of the 2016 vintage have been exhibiting a quality that was quite unexpected, given the difficult start to the year. Climate events in the spring took a severe toll on the harvest, which will no doubt be among the smallest of the past two decades. Fortunately, this has not stopped Chateau de la Crée making wines that will fully live up to the expectations of lovers of Burgundy. In the course of vinification, the qualitative potential was soon confirmed, with lovely balance, which will give the wines elegance, finesse and structure, for both reds and whites. This constitutes the signature of this vintage.

  • Wine-food pairing

    Poultry in sauce or veal fried with mushrooms, foie gras, lobster, crawfish, grilled or fried sea-fish, goat cheeses, reblochon, brie de meaux...

  • Tasting note

    The nose is ethereal and floral with notes of fresh walnut. A lot of freshness in the mouth and a nice tension on the finish. Lovely oaky hints very well integrated.
