Beaune 1er Cru Blanc Cuvée Suzanne & Raymond
Côte de Beaune|
Level: Premier Cru
|AOC: Beaune 1er Cru|
Clear bright fresh colour, the nose is perfectly poised, showing elegance in the floral bouquet, pure white fruit notes on the palate with a fresh finish.
Braised fenel, salmon fishcake, chicken and mushroom pie.
This wine comes from a plot which used to be planted with Pinot Noir (the grapes going into the Beaune Cuvée Cyrot-Chaudron). The old Pinot vines were recently pulled up, and the land replanted in 2010 with Chardonnay. The soil is stony and limerich, with white marls – well suited to white wine production. It is high on the hillside, near the source of the Lulunne stream.
