Notes about product

A blend from various terroirs of the Mâconnais; Viré-Clessé , La Verchère , Saint-Véran , En Combe, Pouilly-Fuissé, and En Carementrant.

Hand-picked grapes, whole berry pressing, 100% vinified and aged in oak barrels (228 liters each) for 11 months.

It is ideal with goat cheese from the Mâconnais.
