Wine Region: Burgundy - France
Grape: 100% Chardonnay.
Tasting notes: Lovely, light yellow colour which is very intense. When opening, an exemplary fruit dominates a very expressive and fragrant smell. Lovely aromas of citruses, pears and Mirabelle plums completed by a pleasant touch of minerals. Excellent texture. Rich, covered, almost oily for a particularly charming wine. This first-class wine is among the most widely known wines of the region.
