Tasting and food pairings
The « Bourgogne Chardonnay » has a rich and golden colour with some light green tints. The bouquet reunites aromas of flowers (hawthorn, honeysuckle) and fruit (lime and grapefruit), with an ever present hint of gun-flint. On tasting, the wine is balanced and harmonious, lifted by an attractive acidity which will help it to keep for a few years.
This is a perfect apéritif wine and goes well with appetizers. Its minerality will match nicely with terrines, asparagus, shellfish, river-fish and of course the unforgettable Burgundy snails and andouillette.
