CERTIFICATION HVE (Haute Valeur Environnementale)
Varietal : Chardonnay
Age of vines : 55 years
Area : 0,40 Hectare
Terroir : On the high slopes of the Roche de Vergisson, this terroir is characterized by a high altitude and a soil with white limestones. This plot is swept by East winds that preserve an excellent balance in wines.
The wine : After manual harvesting, the juice is extracted gently using a pneumatic press. Vinification takes place in oak barrels that have been used for up to five years, and of which 15% are new oak. Ageing of 10 to 12 months allows the wines to improve slowly.

Food and wine combinations : It makes a wonderful accompaniment to fish, white meats and goat’s cheese, but can also be enjoyed on its own as an aperitif.
Drinking recommandations : It is ready for drinking now, but can be kept for around 10 years.
