Its cuvee ”Tilleul” is exclusive to the domain, from a parcel of aligoté situated just opposite the property. This parcel receives treatment specific to it: foliage is raised to increase maturity, soils are worked by horse and ageing is for15 months in Burgundy oak barrels. For the 2015, the nose is with aromas of apple and pear, tinged with fresh nuts and saffron. On the palate, the wine surprises by its power and straightness, with its silky and persistent central thread of lemon, gooseberry and ginger. The grape variety recalls its minerality in a lively but as-ripe-as-you-like finish. ”Tilleul” surpasses itself in general with oriental cuisines, but this year you can attempt to duel with sashimis or sushis.
