This wine displays a yellow light color. A very attractive, well-defined nose with a pronounced fruity character (white and yellow fruit). A subtle minerality comes through after swirling the glass. Well-structured on the palate, fat, fleshy and taut. Fine, delicate and very persistent. A classy white wine.The vineyards are made up 4 plots over of 1,65 hectares (4,07 acres). Vines are located on steep hillsides on the slopes of the Roche de Solutré, close to the climates ‘Crays’, ‘Gerbeaux’ and ‘Croix Bonnet’ Claylimestone and pebbly soil. Immediately upon arrival (20 mins maximum from pick up), the grapes are pressed (pneumatic). Fermentation in temperature-controlled vats for 4 to 6 weeks using only indigenous yeasts. A complete malolactic fermentation is carried out in order to preserve the wine’s complexity. Aging for 12 months on its fine lees in oak barrels (French oak from Jupille forest, CAVIN cooperage, 20% in new oak), and then 6 months in vats. ABV 13%
