    2004: A difficult vintage to describe
    The white wines are very good, and similar to 2001, with lemon and citrus aromas as well as very attractive overripe notes. To drink now or hold (for people who enjoy aged white wines).
    The reds are still closed at present, and not easy to evaluate.

  • Grape Variety & Plot size

    Grape variety: 100% Chardonnay on a 0.13 hectare plot

  • Terroir

    Located on the top of the slope, facing due east with meagre, stony soil and white marl outcrops

  • Vinification & Ageing

    The grapes are handpicked into small crates and the whole bunches are then pressed in a pneumatic winepress. The juice was cold settled after pressing for 12-14 hours under temperature-controlled conditions. Alcoholic fermentation and ageing take place 100% in oak barrels with bâtonnage (lees stirring).
    100% malolactic fermentation
    Duration of ageing: 23 months

  • Tasting Notes

    Tasted in 2005
    COLOUR: Very beautiful greenish-gold with silver-grey highlights
    BOUQUET: Iodised, mineral nose with hints of flint, mushrooms and truffle going on to reveal overtones of brioche, butter and haselnut
    PALATE: Intense and very distinguished, with considerable elegance and polish accompanied by spicy, toasty notes
