Made in collaboration with Jean-Marc Roulot. The grapes ripened early and maintained good acidity. Fermented in barrel without malolactic, spending 11 months in barrique. This has up-front fruit, a salinity shared with Chacra Chardonnay, and a tasty finish lent by the calcareous components of the alluvial soil.
Aged: After fermentation, 9 months in 1st use French oak barrels (15%) and 2nd and 3rd use French oak barrels (85%).

“I love the beautiful aromas of sliced apples, pears and pear blossom. Cookies. Honey. Straw. Full-bodied yet very sleek and polished. Extremely smooth and refined. Hints of cream and lightly toasted nuts and praline. Very, very long and persistent. Fantastic wine made with Burgundy’s famous winemaker Jean-Marc Roulot. Drink now.”
