Terroir: Tête d’Or is sourced from 28 year old vines from a domaine-owned a south/southeast facing 3 hectare parcel at the foot of the Montée de Tonnerre 1er Cru in the heart of the Chablis appellation.
Vinification: Grapes are manually harvested, pressed and macerated at cool temperatures for 7 days. Fermentation entirely in temperature controlled stainless steel. The wine is aged for 12 months in 80% stainless steel, 20% oak.
Attractive white gold color with delicate, pale green reflections. The nose offers citrus and white flowers. The palate is refined, smooth and rich. Everything is perfectly balanced: lively yet discreet, mineral without being dry, fruity yet refined.
