The exceptionally chalky soil in this part of Burgundy provides the ideal terroir for Mathieu Laboureau’s Chardonnay grapes. Grown on steep slopes around the village of Pernand Vergelesses, the vineyard is only 2 hectares providing very small yields. Grapes are hand harvested and carefully selected on the sorting table before traditional vinification including one year in old French oak.
In the glass
Bright gold colour with a fresh, complex, nutty and white flower nose with a slight flintiness. Lively, complex palate with citrus and orchard fruits and a really ample mouthfeel. Superb balance between acidity and freshness.
