This wine is made with botrytised grapes (or « noble rot »). Vinified dry «Morillon Blanc» is the original name for Chardonnay. The older the grapes, the stronger the expression of roasted botrytis grapes combined with a more concentrated colour.
Ripe and expressive, notes of pears, peaches and pineapples, with hints of roasted butter.
Well-rounded and rich, with a ripe, dense, almost fatty matter, and an acidity which balances and refreshes the whole.
Clear, finely astringent, with the ever present mature fruit, but also toasted bread, a touch of butter and a hint of vanilla.
Cured ham and balls of melon, foie gras mi-cuit, guinea fowl with mushrooms, matured cheeses, apple tart…
Serve between 10 and 12°C
Aging potential: At least 5 years. (if not more…)
