White flowers at first approach, the nose intensifies with aeration on brioche tones. Fresh and delicate, the palate does not overdo it but develops a nice fruity character, marrying peach and orange peel. The “Côte de Caillot” Chardonnay from Pupillin is grown on a very steep 30-degree south facing slope at 550 meters altitude of gravelly limestone from the Bajocien period (170 million years ago). Manual harvested and partially destemmed. Fermented foudres (large old barrels) with indigenous yeast. Aged on lees for 24 months. Topped up (ouille). Unfiltered, unfined, No So2 added. ABV 13%
