Cuvée du Perce-Neige
Total production area: 6441 ha
This fine Burgundy white is pale gold in colour and occasionally features silvery yellow reflections. The nose is marked by notes of hawthorn flower, liquorice, lemon and grapes, with warmer nuances of honeysuckle, pear, brioche, iodine, marzipan, nuts, peach and pineapple. On the palate, expect fleshy fruit, with a fresh, saline and lean finish featuring liquorice and exotic fruit aromas.
The freshness and fruity and accessible suppleness of a Bourgogne Blanc make it perfect for a buffet supper of chilled and savoury tapas, or a brunch with soft-boiled eggs and herbs, mushrooms stuffed with shrimps, fromage frais and chives, roasted fish, roasted vegetables with feta, spinach and ricotta ravioli, etc.
And of course this wine is the faithful companion of Burgundian dishes such as gougères (cheese choux pastries), snails and ham and parsley terrine.
