VARIETAL : 100% Chardonnay, also known as “Beaunois” in Chablis. Yield: 50 hl/ha.

ORGANOLEPTIC ANALYSIS

Pale gold in colour.

Complex nose, still young, with notes of flint and citrus zest along with herbal scents reminiscent of thyme, fresh mint and bergamot.

Full and powerful on the palate with flavours of dried fruit, citrus zest, and spice, ending on a lemony note. Very long on the finish.

Ideal with salmon in butter sauce, as well as with capon or roast guinea fowl.
