Characteristics

Chardonnay varietal pruned in Guyot simple. Those 0,84 acres of vines were planted in 2002.

Details

This parcel of vines was replanted in 2002 and is situated next to the family home. Before replanting the soil was left to regenerate without the application of fertilizer for 5 years. The result being young healthy vines who are already giving very mature grapes.

Our white wines marry well with white meat in a creamy sauce. I would also propose the Chassange-Montrachet 1er Cru 'Champgains' with sweet-breads.
