Made from organicaly grown grapes, with no added sulphur, this is a clean and bright wine which goes well with most vegetables and light meat dishes.
The vineyard land sits deep in the Morvan, the great mountain range that runs west by northwest of the famous Cote d’Or. The land here is quite exceptional: the creation of the granite massif of the Morvan has uplifted a marl and limestone strata, revealing fossilized marine deposits. Though Vezelay is a geographic appendage of Chablis, the soils are not exactly the same. Instead of the Kimmerdigian soils, the clays here range from blue and gray to red, sometimes with no clay at all but just shallow limestone. While the climate is slightly cooler than in Chablis, the vines enjoy great sun exposure, lending a balance between generous fruit and deep mineral structure.
