Soil: Clay limestone soil
Established since the Middle Age, north of the Beaune coast, this vineyard is very hilly and covers the slopes of the hills of Aloxe-Corton and Savigny-lès-Beaune. It is the diversity of its floors and its exhibitions that gives each of his creations a strong identity.
Grapes from Domaine Champy’s “Les Quartiers”, “Les Pins”, “La Morand” and “Derrière Frétille”. Fermented and ageing for 10 months in barrels of which 30% are new. Production of 18 000 bottles on average.
Pale golden colour with hints of silver. Good aromatic intensity and good transparency. The nose opens on white flower, citrus and wild mint notes, with a mineral touch. Frank, fresh and elegant attack. On the palate, the wine is mineral, harmonious and rich, with a long and persistent finish.
Perfectly partnered with shellfish such as prawns à la Provençale, saffron scallops, or fishes and poultry in creamy or spicy sauces, such as a fricassée of Bresse in a gingerbread sauce, a tagine of fish, or ewe cheese.
Between 12 and 14°C
