The 2017 vintage offers great wines very aromatic, marked by intense floral and fruity scents. They are frank and very fresh and their texture, underlined by fine and tender tannins, is very elegant. Of good length, they offer on their youth a very beautiful balance and will know how to age harmoniously.
Terroir
The Coteaux Bourguignon appellation is the foundation of the "Grande Bourgogne" which ranges from Beaujolais in the south to Yonne wines in the north, passing naturally through the vineyards of the Mâconnais, Côte Chalonnaise and Côte d'Or . Apart from the origin of the grapes, a great deal of freedom is left to each producer to express in their own way the Burgundian grape varieties Pinot-Noir & Gamay for red wines, Chardonnay & Aligoté for white wines.
Maturing
The wine is aged in stainless steel tanks to preserve supple tannins and let the Gamay grape express its natural aromas. The bottling takes place after 6 to 9 months of aging, allowing to trap a wine in its full youth.
