  • Terroir

    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.

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

  • Tasting notes

    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.
