Winemaking Notes

Many factors contribute to the greatness of this wine: low yields, old vines, cool micro climate, cool fermentation and ageing “sur lie” in the finest, most
nuanced, French oak barrels. Severine cared for these barrels of wine like her own children and crafted a Chardonnay that is both nuanced and structured
while remaining fienssed. This is a wine that merits cellaring and will please the palates of those who gravitate to the legendary wines of upper Meursault
hills in Cote d’Or: richness married with great acidity leading to a tense finish.

Pairing

Simple dishes: pan-fried trout or halibut with a side of garden vegetables works perfectly and allows this wine to show you everything it has to offer.
