Variety: 100% Chardonnay
Vinification: Grapes are harvested exclusively by hand , and soft-pressed whole; a portion of the fruit is fermented at a controlled temperature of approx. 17° Celsius (62.6° Fahrenheit), in stainless steel tanks, another part in new barriques and tonneaux of Allier oak, medium-toasted.
Tasting notes: Deep straw yellow in color; intense, persistent bouquet reminiscent of ripe fruit, with a very pleasing – never excessive – vein of toasted oak.
Food accompaniment: Structured, rich, flavorful first courses, fish soup, mushroom risotto.
