    2006: Beautiful, very classic vintage with a heatwave in the month of July. Very great year for white wines - these are rich and opulent. Lovely vintage producing delicious red wines that are extremely enjoyables as of now.

  • 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:19 months

  • Tasting Notes

    Tasted in 2008 (after bottling)
    COLOUR: White gold with silver-grey highlights
    BOUQUET: Candied lemon, menthol and eucalyptus, with well-defined flinty aromas
    PALATE: Elegant, refined flavours reminiscent of sweet spice, bread and candied citrus
    Classy and beautifully mineral aftertaste
