Description

The plot known as “à la Percenette” has a southerly exposure in the Val de Vallière gorge, facing the slope on which Montaigu is situated.Calcareous lias marls, paper shales rich in bloating clays, kaolinites and pyrites.A super terroir with a favourable microclimate due to its situation in the gorge. This vineyard is planted with vinestocks of "Melon à Queue Rouge", an ancient variety of Chardonnay, selected visually from our own vineyard. The wine ferments then ages in the same barrels, in which the lees are regularly stirred to bring extra richness to the wine. The barrels are kept topped-up to foster the floral aromas which make this variety so special. The bottles are stoppered with natural, fire-branded corks. Pale golden in colour, with subtle aromas of white flowers, peaches, apricots and vanilla.In your mouth the flavour explodes with sparkle and vivacity. A fine example of Chardonnay enhanced by biodynamics. Winery Notes
