The vines for this Chardonnay are located in the “La Côte” area in the village of Denicé, situated on a south-exposed hill with a 10% slope, at an altitude of 300 meters. The soil is made of clay and limestone with marls in its depth. Ageing is done on fine lees during 5 to 7 months. About 5% of the wine has its alcoholic and malolactic fermentation in oak barrels (new, one, two or three wine barrels) with a weekly “Bâtonnage” (lee stirring) for 6 months. At the end, the wine in the barrels is blended with the wine in vats.
Intense golden color. The nose shows step-by-step fruity and mineral notes, typical Chardonnay aromas. A slight oaky hint in the end with a lingering finish.
