ORIGIN

The area which constitutes the Bourgogne appellation spreads across 384 villages of the Yonne, Côte d’Or, Saône et Loire, and Rhône departments. Starting in the North, from the region of Chablis and Auxerre, to the South in the region of Macon, and passing through the Côte d’Or and the Côte Chalonnaise, the Bourgogne wines stem from very diverse terroirs.

This Bourgogne blanc is a blend of Chardonnay grapes from different areas in order to benefit from the freshness, minerality, and liveliness of the northern wines, the structure and roundness of the wines from the Mâconnais and the Côte Chalonnaise, and finally, the power and complexity of the Côte d’Or wines.

Varied terroirs with limestone hillsides, sometimes chalky or Kimmeridgian in the North, with the marl and limestone of the Côte d’Or and the clay with hints of granite from the Saône and Loire.

VARIETAL

The Chardonnay is the grape variety of our Bourgogne Blanc:
- Density of at least 10 000 feet/ha.
- Guyot or cordon de Royat pruning methods.
- Manual harvest.
- Yields of 60 hl/ha in standard year.

CHARACTERISTICS AND ASSETS

Our Bourgogne Chardonnay reflects Burgundy’s terroir, where its grapes grow. The soil gives the wines their fabulous finesse and great aromatic qualities.

Our Chardonnay has the purity of the typical Burgundy “Chardonnay”, very delicately oaky thanks to the ageing in oak barrels.
