Tasting Note

White Beaujolais has always been served at the table at Domaine du Vissoux for generations. Maurice Chermette, Pierre-Marie’s father, vinified it in the barrel and bottled it without filtering for the family to enjoy. The wine was golden and a little cloudy from the deposit. An extraordinary wine! After a few trials of making it in barrels, Pierre-Marie chose to vinify this Chardonnay in stainless steel vats for it to be able to retain the aromatic pureness that is linked to the grape variety and the terroir, without any interference.

Aromas of white flowers, hawthorn, honeysuckle and acacia. Round, rich and long tasting on the palate with flavours of grapefruit, white peach and pear with a honeyed note on the finish.

Product Information

Winemaking

This cuvée is the product of 3 types of soil that give this Chardonnay its fullness of character as well as aromatic complexity. 1/3 from the granitic soil at Le Vissoux, which gives finesse to the Chardonnay, 1/3 from a siliceous-clay soil at Le Nandry in St Vérand, 1/3 from a limestone-clay soil in Oingt, giving depth to this grape variety. Integrated vinegrowing, manual harvest at full ripeness, Guyot pruning. Vinification: Direct pressing, slow alcoholic fermentation (3 weeks) at a low temperature 16°C in stainless steel tanks, minimum SO2, no chaptalization. Aging: stainless steel tank and 10% in acacia barrels.

Food Recommendation

Ideal as an aperitif through to starters, fish and white meat to goat’s cheese.
