The Chardonnay grapes harvested at maximum maturity undergo skin maceration from 6 to 12 hours before being pneumatically pressed. The grapes, the must and the wine are protected from oxidization during the entire winemaking process. Vinification is temperature controlled around 16°, and the wine is subsequently matured on fine lees, and aged in oak barrels.
Beautiful straw yellow colour of great limpidity and brilliance. Complex and intense aromas of citrus fruits, peach and dried fruits mingle with vanilla and oaky notes which are the result of barrel ageing.
A generous and harmonious palate of exceptional volume and great smoothness. The passage in oak barrels is discernable, without masking the delicate floral and fruit notes of this wine.
Food an wine pairing: grilled fish fillets, lobster tails à l'armoricaine, scallops au gratin, mafé of vegetables.
