Les Grèves is one of the 36 Premiers Crus of the Beaune, which earn this distinction in part for their hillside exposure to the sun. Grèves refers to the small, sandy stones that make up this vineyard’s soil. The Chardonnay grapes are fermented and matured in oak barrels for 14 to 18 months before bottling.
This exotic, unusual white wine is rich and spicy, with broad fruit flavors and notes of almonds, earth and toasted oak. It will develop for at least seven years in the bottle.
Pair with fish in white sauce, shellfish or cured meats.
