It comes from Chardonnay grapes grown on parcels owned by the Domaine Bzikot, 0.40 Ha only for this Lieu-Dit Vineyard “La Rousselle”, which is adjacent to Les Perrières Premier Cru on the northern side of the appellation. Marl & limestone with less clay than the rest of the village and East/ South-East exposure. 10,000 stoks per hectares only to extract all possible nuances from the terroir.
Hand harvested and hand sorted twice in the vineyard and at the entrance of the winery. Very slow and gentle pneumatic press to respect the fruit. The wine goes then directly into barrels after being decanted to reduce the sediment. Elevage is around 15 months in oak barrels with 25% new oak before six months in stainless stell vats to keep its freshness.
Straw yellow with golden reflections, the intense notes of white flowers, fresh hazelnuts and vanilla on the nose open giving the palate a full and mineral sip. Persistent and dry on the finish.
Wine with excellent evolutionary prospects.
Taste it at a temperature of 12 ° C pairing it with tuna, lobster, crab, white meat, mushrooms. Foie Gras and noble fish like turbot or monkfish
