Cuvée Claude Seigneuret maintains an emphasis on minerality and freshness owing to the close proximity of the vines with the mother limestone rock and gains in complexity, concentration and depth from the old-vine fruit. Barrel fermentation and aging support the concentrated fruit and add to the perception of roundness and depth. Cuvée Claude Seigneuret posseses extraordinary aging potential in white Burgundy at an exceptionally attractive price.
