Overall the Mâcon area did not suffer from 2016 spring frost. The crop was good, homogeneous and of quality, with attractive wines offering various aromatic hints. Fresh, pleasant and appealing, the wines develop a fairly seductive spell.

Tasting notes:
'The colour is limpid and bright. The wine develops mineral notes with hints of white flowers. Precise on the palate and long aftertaste. It shows an amazing purity.' – Véronique Boss-Drouhin

Vineyards:
A large terroir in the south of Burgundy, close to Pouilly-Fuissé, the village of Bussières is located on the beautiful 'Mont du Mâconnais'. The soils are clay and chalk, very favourable to the cultivation of the Chardonnay grape, and date back to the Jurassic era.

Vinification:
The grapes were pressed very slowly so as to respect the fruit. Juices from the last pressings were not retained. No artificial yeasts or enzymes were used. Part of the wine was aged in 500-litre oak barrels and the other part went into stainless steel vats; both for 6 – 8 months. Throughout the ageing process, decisions were taken only after careful tasting evaluation. The data obtained was completed through technical analysis. As with every other Joseph Drouhin wine, absolute priority was given to the true expression of terroir and character of the vintage.
