Overview

Located in the north of Burgundy, in Yonne department, the appellation stretches over around 20 communes that cover the hillsides running alongside the pretty Serein Valley. The vineyard enjoys an exceptional geological situation. The main bedrock comes from the Jurassic epoch, or more precisely the Kimmeridgean age (150 million years ago). Deposits of tiny oysters can still be found today in the rock, remains of a time where the sea was totally covering this territory.

Winery Tasting Notes

Colour: pale gold

Nose: intense and fruity, with aromas of mandarin and pineapple on a soft background of fresh almonds

Palate: fresh and generous, very typical of its appellation, showing a very pleasing minerality. The finale is long-lasting and saline, perfect to emphasize any type of sea food

Food and wine pairing

It can be enjoyed young (2-3 years old) with fatty fish (salmon or bluefin tuna), sushi, sashimi or with poultry meat.

It will perfectly match with asian or exotic food but harmonizes also very well with goat cheeses, as well as Beaufort, Comté or with matured cheddars.

Serving suggestions

Ideally serve between 10° and 11°C / 50° - 52°F.

Ageing potential

Between 4 and 5 years.
