Le Pavillon

Le Pavillon

Appellation: Mâcon Villages Blanc
Varietal: Chardonnay
Orientation: South-facing exposures
Average age of vines: 40 + years
Principal soil type: Clay & limestone above limestone base

Marriage of two parcels, one of 70 years and the second of 15 years. Both parcels are planted on hard limestone rock which rises close to the surface and lends a distinct minerality and tension regardless of the vintage. Stainless steel aging helps to keep the accent on its structure.

For the money, one would be hard pressed to find another white Burgundy that delivers so much for so little. Always possessing tremendous energy, a cool, pure, mineral core while accents of lemon rind and orchard fruit round out the palate. A modest white Burgundy that delivers big.
