When young or after 5 years in a cellar, this white Mercurey from Albert Bichot has fresh aromas with hints of vanilla and wood. Its energy and nervosity make it a great match with poultry or strong cheese. More info

Produced from 20-year-old vines grown on clay-limestone soils, the Chardonnay is harvested by hand before fermenting in oak barrels for six weeks and undergoing élevage in barrels for 14 to 16 months. If opened during its youth or after 5 years of cellaring, it will express aromas of white fruits, and vanilla and lightly oaky aromas from its élevage. On the palate, its minerality and tension give it a nice length, making it an excellent pairing indeed with foods such as poultry in sauce, regional cheeses or even fish.

Mercurey Les Champs-Michaux Adélie - Albert Bichot serve at a temperature of 13°C. It will pair perfectly with the following dishes: Poule-au pot, Lasagne de cabillaud aux petits légumes, Saint-Marcellin.
