  • Tasting notes

    This wine, surprising for a «simple» Burgundy Chardonnay, has a light yellow colour with silvery reflections.
    On the nose, a remarkable complexity. Peach and nectarine appear with orange peel, aniseed and a slightly mentholated touch of eucalyptus.
    The palate is all in harmony, a delicate supple roundness with a freshness that supports the wine and brings energy and precision.

  • Food pairing

    Treat yourself to magnificent iodized products such as a freshly seared shrimp carabineros, a drizzle of olive oil, and a lightly lemony emulsion or a sea urchin with a lemon cream lightly seasoned with dill.
