Winemaker's Notes

On this vineyard plot, the soil is compact and hard to work because it is strewn with little rocks, hence the name "Clos Rochette". This Chardonnay holds a brilliant pale yellow color. The nose is generous with aromas of fruit and oak. The entrance is clean and straightforward. The richness in the mouth expresses the concentration of well-ripened grapes combined with aging in oak barrels. Already this wine is enjoyable to drink. Serve with light appetizers, vol-au-vent (puff pastry), fish and poultry dishes. Cellaring potential is 5-7 years.
