"Les Tillets"



APPELLATION: The Meursault appellation, located 8 km from Beaune, has a soil composed mainly of Comblanchien hard limestone and sinks into the depths at the height of Nuits-Saint-Georges and here it reappears rather than heading south. We are abandoning the reds in favor of hilly white wine. The vineyard is made up of 96% white wines and 4% red wines. The best terrains are found at approximately 260 meters above sea level with an oblique exposure from east to south. There are occasional undertones of magnesium limestone. The vineyard is exceptional for its calcareous marl.
The wines are divided between the ancient Callovian limestones and the Argovian marl rocks.

VARIETY: 100% Chardonnay

SURFACE: 0.21 hectares

VINIFICATION: 100% harvested manually, upon arrival in the cellar the grapes are pressed directly without crushing. After a light decantation, the musts are directly placed in the barrels. Aged 15 months, 12 of which in barriques (10-15% new).

TASTING NOTES: Golden color. The nose marks delicate aromas of minerality and white flowers. A powerful and direct overall balance dominates the mouth.

GASTRONOMIC COMBINATIONS: A good accompaniment for fish and white meats.
