produces this very elegant, subtle chardonnay from 30 to 55 year old vines on an
exceptional terroir sited on a lower southerly hillside in the Château-Chalon AC
village of Voiteur where there is a limestone layer in the subsoil rich in
marine fossils at a point where younger Lias marls change to Triassic marls.
Aged for 18 months in five to twelve year old topped up barrels, on the nose
there is a hint of almond and it’s notably saline. The palate is complex with
hints of white peach, apricot, aniseed, menthol (often the mark of the best
terroirs), you don’t notice any oak, and the finish is clear cut and saline. For
drinking now to 2017.
