COUNTRY/REGION: France/Burgundy/Cote de Beaune.
GRAPES: 100% Chardonnay.
Saint-Romain shows a pale yellow colour with green touches. The nose is very expressive with white flowers and white fruit flesh aromas. It is well structured in the mouth with a nice acidity giving a very nice and fresh aftertaste.
VINEYARDS: Saint-Romain is a small village next to Auxey-Duresses. The vineyards are quite high and steep, planted under famous cliffs. Vineyards have South/South-East orientation. The soils of Saint-Romain are made of lime stones with some clay veins, very appropriate to the production of white wines.
VINTAGE: After a complicated start to the growing season, a dry summer with some much needed rainfall in September meant grapes were harvested at a good level of ripeness from 27 September.
WINEMAKING: The wine is aged in french oak barrels for 14 months.
