  • 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 Château 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

    Delicate fine white meats such as poultry or veal in sauce, fish, well-spiced couscous, curries or stir-fries, salmon, crawfish, lobster, or even foie gras.

  • Tasting note

    One of the most exquisite and complex white wine of Château de la Crée. The bouquet displays notes of white flowers, buttery and creamy characteristics. The palate is very persistent, focusing on the richness and minerality. Very well-balanced wine with a strong personality.
