Like all of the 36 Premier Cru vineyards in the Beaune appellation, Beaune Bressandes is situated on a slope, which gives the vineyard superior sun exposure. This Premier Cru is considered one of the finest for white wine. The wine is matured in oak barrels for about 18 months before bottling.

Tasting Note

A vivacious acidity is balanced by rich aromas and flavors of white fruit, spice and toast. The wine will develop in the bottle for 12 to 15 years after the vintage.

Food Pairing

Serve with rich fish, cooked shellfish, pâtés and light white meats.

About the Grape

Though it has a distinctive profile, Chardonnay reflects other factors such as soil composition and vinification technique. Chardonnay is a reliable, hardy and prolific vine whose only real vulnerabilities are frost and uneven development of fruit.
