A brilliant golden robe.
The nose is intensely marked by barrel ageing, with sweet aromas of vanilla, honey, dried fruits, and delicious pastry notes.
As the nose, the palate is generous, and round, with the same original aromatic profile livened up by a lot of power, elegance, and freshness: wooded, vanilla and lightly caramelized flavors derive from this blending. Especially on the palate, delicate notes of white flowers, nuts, almond paste, as well as subtle grilled and toasted aromas develop.
Our Fût de Chêne cuvée, will perfectly pair with appetizers, especially with foie gras. It particularly enhances sautéed or sauce-covered mushrooms, such as white and black truffles, chanterelles, and morels. It also ideally pairs with cheeses like Comté and Pecorino, and with fine charcuterie.

High aromatic power
The Fût de Chêne cuvée is characterized by meticulous savoir-faire and exceptional research into blending and vinification. It is the fruit of a unique blend between the freshness of Chardonnay and the intensity of Pinot Noir. Its uniqueness comes in particular from its vinification, with several months’ ageing in oak old barrick. That gives it a distinctive aromatic power, marked by woody touches and delicious exotic notes.
