Introduction : Situated at the southern edge of the Burgundy region, the delightful “terroirs” of the “Terres Secrètes” (“Secret Lands”) are spread over the rolling, sunny landscape of the Mâconnais region. These “terroirs” are located, selected and defined in the form of specific parcels of land – some of which are tiny – where all the typical features of the particular plot are concentrated. The Terres Secrètes wine growers have marked out these distinct enclosures, perfectly identified plots like little gardens of Eden, selected for their remarkable exposure and the age of their vines.
The wine growers of the Terres Secrètes are committed to sustainable development. The only cooperative wine cellar in the Grand Site Solutré-Pouilly-Vergisson, over the generations we have got to know our region and ensure its preservation.
Region : Burgundy
Appellation : Chardonnay
Grape Variety : 100% Chardonnay

Ageing : All the vats are in stainless steel in to facilitate temperature control. The alcoholic fermentation occurs between 27 to 30 °C thanks to a thermic regulation system.

Tasting notes: Deliciously ripe pear, apricot, citrus and exotic melon underpinned by a lean, mineral purity; vibrant and fresh with a mouthwatering juiciness and a very long finish. 96/100 from Decanter
Serving temperature : 10 °C
Food pairing : Enriched by toasty and vanilla aromas, this wine will be of a choice alliance on red meat and game.
