2014
  • Characteristic

    After the dormant winter period, the vines returned to life in clement, warm and dry conditions. At the end of June, the weather changed, becoming cool and damp, but ripening continued nonetheless. The return of the sun and a northerly wind - the signature of September in the Bourgogne wine region - led to ideal conditions for the vines to reach full maturity. Picking began in mid-September in a serene and sunny atmosphere.

  • Wine-food pairing

    Fish and shellfish, onion tarts, as well as a wide variety of soft and hard cheeses such as Brie, Beaufort or even Saint-Nectaire.

  • Tasting note

    The nose unveils deep intensity of floral and exotic aromas. The palate is quite fresh during the attack with a vibrant acidity. The finish is clean with some touch of white flavors. A delicate white wine !
