- Area : 0.50 hectares
- Age of vines : 45 years on average
After manual harvesting, the grapes are pressed immediately with care. Fermentation starts naturally (without the addition of yeast) in 300-litre and 400-litre barrels to preserve the fruit and the approachability of the Chardonnay.
La Pucelle offers a wine of a beautiful typicity or particular character, always highlighting minerality or subtlety, rather than power. It is a wine with good length and is balanced even in hot vintages. The nose develops delicate aromas of citrus, acacia blossom with a slightly toasty note. It can be cellared for 5 to 7 years old without fear.
