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.

Our Bourgogne Blanc is a blend of Chardonnay grapes from various origins; this allows it to benefit from the northern wines’ freshness, minerality, and vigor; the Macon and Côte chalonnaise wines’ fullness and roundness, and the Côte d’Or wines’ power and complexity.

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 » type pruning.
- Manual harvest.
- Yields of 60 hl/ha in a standard year.

CHARACTERISTICS AND ASSETS

The miracle of Burgundy’s wines begins by the end of the first millennium.

As a result of the disorder in Charlemagne’s Empire, Europe was threatened by barbarians. But from the heart of Burgundy will spread one of the greatest movements of revival. The Benedictines from Cluny (909) near Mâcon and the Cistercians from Cîteaux (1098), who’s power and wealth surpassed that of kings, will dedicate a part of their activities to the elaboration of great wines for the glory of God.

TASTING NOTES

Golden white colour with emerald highlights, limpid, and bright.

The honest and frank bouquet is expressed on notes of citrus, white flesh fruits, on a touch of minerality that brings tension.

The mouth, very pleasant, in the sweetness, offers a velvety texture, pleasant, with a good integrated acidity. A racy and well balanced wine.
