Varietal

100% Chardonnay

Origins

The Nuits-Saint-Georges appellation has only 6.79 ha of white premier cru. A rarity! The plot "Les Terres Blanches" located at the edge of the forest of the Mountain on the village of Premeaux-Prissey offers the most famous chardonnays of the appellation. Exposed south, the soil is predominantly limestone, it is light and very filtering. Dotted with small white gravel, it gives its name to the climate.

Vineyard selection and management

This wine was produced from old vines subjected to particular growing techniques: high pruning of the vines, limited yields due to severe disbudding, green harvest if needed, crop cover grown between the rows, little or no use of fertilizers, environmentally friendly pest management that respects beneficial wildlife.
