Notes from the Winemaker:
This cuvée comes from a blend ofwines from 60% Mâconnais in the area of Lugny where you can find a lot of limestone in the soil, which gives wines with more freshness and mineral structure. It also contains 40% of wines from Montagny in the Côte Chalonnaise where you can find more clay and white marl, which gives some roundness and density.

Tasting Notes:
A candied, tropical nose. On the palate, ripe butterscotch flavors with an easy silky texture. Golden Delicious apple flavor and quite floral, too, with a minty finish.

PERSONALITY:
I have blended these two soils because each one gives something different: -The wines from the limestone soils of Lugny give some freshness and minerality the structure. There are aromas of citrus, grapefruit, and white roses.-The wines from Montagny give notes of ripe pear and peach. In the mouth, the wine is always fresh, young at heart, frisky, alluring, and rich in spicy flavors. I thought that the balance between these two appellations could be interesting in a cuvée with a good balance of aromas and structure.

VINIFICATION & AGING The aging is in stainless tanks 14 month before the bottling.
