Located in Burgundy’s Yonne department on slopes that face southwest to best capture the afternoon sun’s rays, this Grand Cru plot, known as “Bougros”, is the westernmost of the Grand Crus.
SoilThe calcareous clay-based soil contains more clay than do the other Grand Crus. This enables the soil to retain more water, yielding structured wines with excellent ageing potential.
Grape variety100 % Chardonnay.
VinificationVinification takes place essentially in temperature-controlled tanks. The wine is barrel aged (with a maximum of 15 to 30% new oak) so as to ensure that this Grand Cru expresses all of its minerality and tension.
RobeBeautiful straw yellow in colour with golden highlights.
NoseNuances of perfectly ripe stone fruits (yellow peach) with a touch of dried apricot and a hint of brininess.
PalateBursting with fruit and a touch of oak on the palate, the overall tasting experience is harmonious and full of finesse. The finish is long and incredibly expressive.
Serve withMatch this wine with grilled or poached fish such as sole meunière, sea bream and eggplant millefeuille, or scampi and spinach lasagna. As for cheese, opt for a nutty 18-month-old Comté or an aged Mimolette to bring out all of this Grand Cru’s richness.
Serve atServe between 10 and 12°C to best appreciate this wine’s freshness and minerality
