    The hard Comblanchian limestone which disappears deep underground around Nuits-Saint-Georges reappears here where, as one moves southward, red wines give way to whites. Nowhere in the Côte de Beaune does the Chardonnay grape do better than it does here.

  • Characteristic

    The fruit was in impeccable condition and at optimal ripeness; the winning duo. The generous wines from this sunny vintage will be noteworthy. Things went very fast in 2015, both in the vineyards and the winery. Flowering took place in early June, followed by véraison in mid-July, with the start of harvesting at the end of August. The weather dictated the tempo, which resulted in some magnificent grapes, the foundation of a great vintage.

  • Wine-food pairing

    Noble and fine-textured fish or meat, joints of veal or poultry in white sauce, grilled lobster, crawfish, king prawns in sauce - dishes, blue cheeses and foie gras.

  • Tasting note

    Stunning and charming nose with light notes of toasted almonds and hazelnuts in a floral (mayflower, elder, bracken, lime, verbena) and mineral setting. Very soft and slight. Lots of mineral aromas in the mouth, well integrated wood. A very seducing and structured wine with long finish - this is a great white wine for laying down.
