After experiencing the splendour of the Court of Versailles, this vineyard extending over nearly 5,000 hectares in 1830, was damaged by the phylloxera and world wars. Since then forgotten by time, the Auxois is now reviving through fruity and fine wines. Located between Montbard and Semur-en-Auxois, our Coteaux de l'Auxois vineyard extends over 10 hectares. The vines are pruned in lyre style and enjoy beautiful south to southeasterly exposures in the communes of Villaines-les-Prévôtes and Viserny.
Tasting and food pairings
Elegant and harmonious, the Saveurs de Lyre is supple and delicate on the palate, with mineral notes. The blend Auxerrois / Chardonnay gives the wine a good balance and a long finish. It will be the perfect companion for appetizers, meats and fish with sauce or grilled.
