Burgundy, France

100% Chardonnay
With vines that are 50 years old, the grapes come from parcels located in the regional appellation area on the Côte de Beaune. Soil properties are predominately clay and limestone.  Guyot pruning with different seasonal processes in the vineyard (pruning, trellising on wires/tying-in, thinning fruit-bunches).
VINIFICATION
the grapes are harvested by hand and sorted when picking the grapes. They are lightly pressed then in a pneumatic press at a low pressure to get a slow extraction.  After a gentle racking of the must, the wine is put in French oak casks of 500 liters (10% of new oak) for both of alcoholic and malolactic fermentations with wild yeasts and aged during 11 months. During this time, they do the stirring of the lees in the barrels. A month before the bottling, the wine from the different barrels is put in a stainless steel tank to make the blend. The wine is finally fined and lightly filtered before bottling, according to the lunar calendar ("fruit” day).
TASTING & PAIRING
Fruity and floral aromas. A fresh and mineral wine.  Best enjoyed with seafood, shell-fish or simply for an "aperitif"
