Description

100 % Chardonnay coming from:
– 60 % Cramant Grand Cru (a tenth of the vines are more than 40 years old: Buissons, Fond du Bateau, Gros Monts…), more than 37 % of the grapes are harvested from vines that had been planted in 1911 and 1913
– 27,5 % Chouilly Grand Cru (15 % Mont Aigu planté en 1951. 12,5 % Ronds Buissons)
– 12,5 % Cuis 1er Cru (Croix-Blanche, …)
This cuvée offers a very beautiful balance between the different origins of our chardonnay. Cramant mostly of course (so structured and mineral), Chouilly in a large part (Mont Aigu for elegance) and a piece of Cuis (for the freshness and to sign Pierre Gimonnet)..
