Chitry-le-Fort is a historic winemaking region of Auxerrois. Nestled at the bottom of a cratered mountainside planted with vines, the village boasts a stunning fortified church dating back to the 13th century flanked by a great tower that protected it from plundering during times of war. The Chitry vines sit on the hills that surround the valley in which the village is found. Aspect: north/north-east, south/south-east
Tasting and food pairings
The nose of the Bourgogne Chitry 2014 marries floral notes (hawthorn and honeysuckle) with fruit (lemons and grapefruit) and a hint of flint. On the palate it is balanced and harmonious with an acidity that allows it to be kept for several years.
This wine is naturally well-suited to being drunk as an aperitif. Its minerality works well with terrines, asparagus, shellfish, freshwater fish and, of course, the classic Burgundian snails and 'andouillettes'.
