Localization: Vergisson, Cote Chalonnaise, Burgundy, France
Tasting Notes: The wine presents rich and greedy aromas of vanilla, pear and pineapple as well as white flowers. On the palate, the expression is elegant, pure with a touch of citrus on the finish, all the charm of a great Mâcon.
Notes: Vines planted at a density of 8,000 vines per hectare. Yield control, disbudding and leaf stripping, environmentally friendly cultivation. Regular plowing reveals the typicality of the terroir. Aging for 8 months in 500-liter oak barrels on fine lees.
Food pairing: Wine for an aperitif, an entry buffet, fish terrine.
The Domain: Their estate is located in Vergisson, a small picturesque village anchored in an exceptional and historical terroir where legends abound.
They benefit from a magnificent panorama over the Rock of Solutré and the outcrop of Vergisson. They farm a wide range of plots and blocks, the famous French climates where the Chardonnay grape expresses itself superbly well, on clay and limestone soils which give birth to rich and varied wines.
Meticulous work in the vineyard as well as in the cellar allows Domaine Thierry Drouin to extract the best from the soil and from the grapes, and to emphasize the typicity of each terroir in the best possible way.
Combining decades of know-how and experience, Charles and Thierry craft authentic, utterly delicious wines.
