The grapes used for this wine are exclusively Chardonnay, a variety that finds an ideal environment in Burgundy to express its full potential. The vineyards of Charmes Premier Cru, from which these grapes originate, enjoy a privileged location on limestone and clayey soils. This terroir combination imparts remarkable aromatic complexity and notable structure to the wine.
Vineyard cultivation follows the principles of sustainable agriculture, with great attention to preserving the surrounding environment. Harvesting is done manually, allowing for precise selection of grapes at optimal ripeness.
In the cellar, the grapes are gently pressed, and the juice is fermented in oak barrels, where the wine develops its complexity and structure. Aging takes place in oak barrels, imparting a touch of elegance and refinement to the wine.
