Wine Facts

Winemaker Notes
The grapes come from 47 hectares (116.1 acres) of traditional Gobelet-trellised southeast-facing vineyards with vines more than 50 years old. Harvesting of this wine is conducted manually, in whole bunches, and the grapes are destemmed before pressing. Semi-carbonic maceration and malolactic fermentation takes place in French foudres (large, neutral oak barrels).


Interesting Facts
The Chateau, owned by the de Chabanne family, was the hunting lodge for the nearby Chateau de la Chaize, whose estates in the 17th Century extended to the Saone River (approximately ten kilometers). La Chaise was a confessor to Louis XIV and was awarded the land for his intercession with Heaven on behalf of the French king.


Serving Hints

This wine pairs best with lamb shanks, charcuterie and semi-soft cheeses.
