Situated on the left bank of the Serein river, the Côte de Léchet benefits from a south easterly exposure to the sun. Thanks to this sun exposure the very feeble and pebbly soils produce small yields and early-ripening grapes .
Tasting and food pairings
The wine is clean and bright with a pale golden robe tinged with green. The nose offers delicate floral and mineral notes and in the mouth, the wine is lively, very mineral and shows the perfect balance between tension and elegance.
Ideal served with seafood, fish and white meat.

The full and ripe citrus nose is matched by the same character on the quite expansive, creamy palate. A touch of caramel, but it remains so fresh and the long finish is decisively dry. Drink or hold.

Lime zest, wet stone, biscuit and peach pit on the nose. It's medium-bodied with tangy acidity. Flint and lemon pith on the finish. Tight. Drink now.
