Alternating calcareous, pebbly, marly and sandy soils. South-east facing, on gentle slopes, at an altitude between 220 and 330m.
This wine is perfect served with poached turbot and beurre blanc, Bresse chicken with a cream sauce, eel, smoked salmon, trout with almonds, shellfish and veal sweetbreads. It is also an ideal match for Japanese mochi. Try it with foie gras or, for an original flavour combination, duck à l’orange.
This great white Burgundy can be kept in the cellar up to 10 years.
