Soil is redzine over chalk. The Chardonnay grapes come from several plots on the Les Mont-Ferrés (Vertus ler Cru). The fruit from this site gives good concentration and produces quite aromatic juices and resulting base wine. Slopes face South and South-East giving optimal maturing conditions. Average age of the vines is 40 years.
Hand-picked. Pure expression of Chardonnay from Vertus. Blend of selected plots from harvests. 20% of Reserve wines from old vintages to give complexity as well as consistency of style. On tirage for 2 ½ years. Dosage is 6 grams / litre.
