harvest note

Burgundy’s 2016 began with fickle weather in spring, including frost and hailstorms that demanded a reinforced presence at the vines. Thankfully the chaotic start had no impact on quality of the vintage. Splendid summer conditions followed, bringing ideal conditions for ripening. In the weeks leading up to harvest, the vines benefited from hot, sunny days and cooler nights that allowed for optimum maturity and superb grape quality.

tasting note

Along with a lovely pale straw color, this wine has an expressive nose of medium intensity green apple, pear and crushed stone and a hint of apricot and flowers. The palate brings forth bright, fresh citrus fruits with slight tropical notes of apricot and pineapple and is balanced with fresh acidity and stony minerality stemming from it’s sunny southern birthplace.

food pairing

Grilled seafood & chicken, salads, shellfish and pasta primavera.
