From 45 year old Chardonnay vines planted over several parcels in Arbois. Each parcel is harvested and vinified seperatley in used, 600 liter French oak casks. Emeric decides on the final blend only after each individual wine develops its personality through time in barrel.
The wine soars from the glass with ripe green apple, preserved Meyer lemon, honeysuckle, crushed rocks and a touch of marzipan. The palate is simultaneously firm and expansive, expertly balancing a broad mouthfeel with salty minerals and taut, exacting acidity. For such an assertive and flavorful wine to remain so straightforwardly delicious and elegant is rare indeed.
