  • This wine, reflective of the cooler climate in which it was produced, offers a rich and full-flavoured profile. Its distinctive notes include bright grapefruit and mineral flavours and a lingering and refreshing saline finish. This precise white Burgundy originates from a cooler site in Santenay, contributing to its notable mineral characteristics. A mineral and precise white Burgundy from a cooler site in Santenay showing a beautifully nervy and razor-sharp character through to a long and salty finish.

The grapes were gently pressed and racked to a barrel where fermentation took place with natural yeasts. The wine was kept on its fine lees and underwent bâtonnage to impart texture and complexity to the wine. The malolactic conversion took place in the barrel. The wine was 100% barrel aged for 12 months in 350 litre barrels, of which 20% were new oak. The wine was then transferred to a tank, where it spent six months before being lightly fined, filtered and estate bottled.

Expressive of its cooler climate, this is a mineral and precise white Burgundy with grapefruit flavours and a razor-sharp character, which leads to a long, saline finish.

Winery

The grapes come from 'Clos des Champs Carafe', a walled vineyard that is the highest in the village. Because of the elevated site, the wines are always well-balanced with refreshing acidity. The vineyard is managed with respect for the unique attributes of each site's terroir and is farmed sustainably and organically, although it is not certified. Some biodynamic philosophies are also followed. The grapes are hand-picked and carefully sorted before vinification.
