Tasting notes

Tasting Note 

A classic Chardonnay from Southern Burgundy - fine buttery and floral notes on the nose and wine of substance and finesse on the palate. Some creamy textural notes up front reveal the discreet presence of oak, whilst on the finish, there is some underlying minerality and a hint of citrus zestiness that provides long-lasting flavours.

Food match

An admirable accompaniment to the classic Burgundian dish of poulet à la crème (chicken in a creamy sauce), or a shellfish chowder. Great with vegetable risotto and pan-fried fish, too.


Production

From a 12 hectare plot in the village of Bussières, to the south of the Mâconnais region, with an average vine age of about 40 years. The soil is classic argilo-calcaire that suits Chardonnay so well and lends elegance and finesse to the final wines. 10% of the wine is barrel aged to give a more textural, slightly creamy element.
