Production

This grape proves its capacity to adapt to soils with high pH, where it is able to express great freshness even when bathed in sunshine. This wine was made from a blend of well-ripened Chardonnay and earlier-picked grapes with good acidity. Aged in oak, this Chardonnay is generous and represents excellent value for money. The grapes are harvested during the night and pressed immediately. 20% of the juice is vinified in barrels and aged for 6 months on its lees using battonage, and the remainder is vinified in stainless steel.

Tasting notes

Food match

Simply grilled fish or pan roasted in some butter, and roasted vegetables.
