The grapes come from Rully village, in the north of the Côte Chalonnaise between Mercurey and Santenay. Soil : limestone in under soil and clay in upper soil which brings roundness to the wine. South exposure. 100% Chardonnay. Guyot pruning with different seasonal processes in the vineyard (pruning, trellising on wires/tying-in, thinning fruit-bunches).
 
VINIFICATION
The grapes are harvested by hand and sorted when picking the grapes. They are lightly pressed then in a pneumatic press at a low pressure to get a slow extraction. After a gentle racking of the must, the wine is put in French oak casks of 500 liters (15% of new oak) for both of alcoholic and malolactic fermentations.
 
AGEING
Ageing on fine lees during 11 months. A month before the bottling, the wine from the different barrels is put in a stainless steel tank to make the blend. The wine is finally fined and lightly filtered before bottling it according to the lunar calendar ("fruit” day).
 
TASTING NOTE
Rich and complex wine with mineral touches.
 
FOOD PAIRING
