AREA: 17a 50ca.
SOIL TYPE: Clay-limestone, fairly poor and stony.
YIELD: 66 hl/ha.
AVERAGE AGE: 35 years
PRUNING METHOD: Low-trained vines, grassed down between rows but tilled beneath the vines, sustainable approach, harvested by hand.

TASTING NOTES: A light golden color, this white Hautes-Côtes de Nuits is an aromatic wine with some oak and citrus notes. In the mouth, its crispness gives good balance to its nice profile that should allow it to age well.
FOOD & WINE COMBINATIONS: Goes very well with snails, jambon persillé, shellfish, and cheeses like goat cheese and reblochon. A sure-fire hit as an aperitif.
