    2002 is a very pure, well-focused vintage. The grapes were beautifully ripe and healthy, without a trace of rot. Just how great this vintage is, of course, depends on the terroir.
    However, the wines are showing very well with plenty of fruit, considerable delicacy and beautifully ripe tannin.
    The withe wines are very great, with superb ageing potential, but rather closed-in at present (2007)

  • Grape Variety & Plot size

    Grape variety: 100% Chardonnay on a 0.28 hectare plot

  • Terroir

    Very thin soil (15-20 cm) on a steep slope facing due east
    Very calcareous subsoil
    Lithographic limestone
    Stony soil

  • 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:18 months

    BOUQUET: Quite complex and expressive with roasted and very fruity (yellow fruit) aromas
    PALATE: Delicious, with mineral, salty, roasted and very fruity flavours
