La Cra

MÂCON-IGÉ

CUVÉE PRESTIGE

From Chardonnay on a very chalky limestone soil, exposed on a plateau overlooking the Château London and the Crépillionne. Thanks to a slight maturity, we obtain a richness as well alcoholic as fat and fruity aromas. The aging in the barrel is very well supported by the wine which takes the upper hand from the middle of the fermentation. Thanks to this very beautiful maturity and to a long and low temperature natural fermentation. Respect for the terroirs and nature by collecting very ripe grapes, which seems to me quite logical to obtain a high quality wine! This cuvée created since 1999, only, is already the reference of the Domaine Fichet in Chardonnay.
