Description

Les Grand Classiques or the essential Burgundy wines...
A reflection of their terroir, the village appellations and premier cru villages from this range are revealed. Their authenticity and their assertive character are renewed crop after crop thanks to a deep respect for the ancestral Burgundian expertise.

Appellation: A vineyard to the south of the Côte de Beaune, Chassagne-Montrachet is the undisputed prince of dry white wines even if it also produces reds.

The Abbey of Morgeot, now belonging to the Domaine des Ducs de Magenta, located in the heart of the climate, hosted the shooting of the film «What binds us» by Cédric Klapisch;   Soil: Middle Jurassic

Varietal100% Chardonnay

Harvest: The grapes are cut and sorted by hand.

Vinification: The grapes are pressed then placed in demi-muids to be vinified

Ageing: Ageing takes place in demi-muids of 2 wines for 8 to 10 months.

Tasting:  A golden color, shiny, clear.
On the nose, notes of ripe white and yellow fruits with light touches of citrus peel. Woody, toasted touches bring depth and character.
On the palate, the wine is round, silky, with a delicate volume that coats the mouth, a slight freshness that supports the wine and brings finesse. A tonic, saline and lemony finish.

Food pairing:  The salinity of the wine will match iodized products as long as it provides a rich aromatic range. For example, a magnificent sole cooked meunière or a scallop ravioli accompanied by a shellfish broth.
