  • Characteristic

    The vines growth cycle benefited from a very warm summer, and with budburst in early April, it was ahead of norms and maintained this lead right up to the harvest. Everything happened very quickly. There were a few spells of heatwave over the summer, alternating with some rather mixed weather. Ripening nonetheless progressed at a good pace. At the beginning of September, the first grapes were harvested. The harvest continued to mid-September, each plot being picked when it reached optimum ripeness. The only downside was that some areas that were impacted by spring frost did not provide the yields that had been hoped for.

  • 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

    Its aromas are acacia, mayflower, honeysuckle, bramble flowers with notes od hazelnut, white peach and ripe pear. In the mouth, the wine is fresh, young at heart, frisky, alluring, and rich. Refinement and delicacy are harmoniously matched to a durably well-built structure.
