  • 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

    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

    Nose: slight notes of citrus, honey and white flowers. Mouth: We find here again the typical notes of Chassagne with slight notes of flintstones / flintiness, intense notes of citrus in the middle of the mouth. You feel the power and the opulence of this wine that will get even more impact and benefit from ageing and cellring.
