The first harvest was in 1996. The first release was the 98 vintage. This is an experimental white wine, our first encounter with Chardonnay.
Ripeness is usually excellent with decent yields. A fat wine with honeyed aromas of apple and pear. Great acidity keeps it from being heavy. The 2000 vintage was aged for 12 months in 100% new oak imparting notes of fresh butter and hazel nuts.
The final result gives a wine that can be paired with fish and meat in white sauces, quenelles, foie gras… An experimental pairing with fresh truffles or even sweet spices would be interesting.
Our White Burgundy (0.17 ha) is situated in the locality of Pasquiers and was planted in 1994.
