Notes from the winemaker:
We purchase fruit from the most beautiful parcels of aged vines in the Côte de Beaune and in the Côte Chalonnaise. That enables us to obtain rich wines and to avoid stirring of the lees in barrels.
2009 was a glorious year in many ways: Spring was rather mild. The flowering took place in ideal weather conditions, warm and sunny. Summer was characterized by strong rains, especially in July, where there were thunder storms, unusual for the season. The association of rain and fine weather with frequent heat spikes, settled down from June to mid-August. The end of August and September were gorgeous: the lack of rain, ideal temperatures combined with steady wind, led to perfect maturity along with perfectly healthy fruit. Harvest took place from the beginning of September. White wines are characterized by a great aromatic profile: roundness and depth of flavor, which gives intensity and consistency.
The entry-level white Burgundy comes from old-vine parcels in the Côte de Beaune and Côte Chalonnaise. The vines have an average age of 65 years and, as with all the wines, harvesting is done by hand. For this cuvée, about half is vinified in stainless steel and half in used oak barrels. This gives a nice balance of fresh fruit with a light touch of oak.
