Domaine Yves BAZIN Villars-Fontaine
  Bourgogne Hautes Côtes de Nuits Blanc
Appellation : Bourgogne Hautes Côtes de Nuits Blanc AOC
Grape Variety: 100 % Chardonnay
Surface and Age of Vines: 3 hectare 40 ares of 25-year-old vines 32 ares of young vines
Harvest: Hand-picked grapes
Wine-growing: After going through the sorting-table, the grapes go to a traditional press; then the juice ferments in a vat.
Maturing: Of two types:
- White HC matured from 9 to 12 months in oak barrels to keep fruit flavours.
- White HC matured from 12 to 18 months in 40% of new barrels and 60% of two-wine barrels for a more tannic wine with more character.
Laying down: A pleasant and fruity wine when young, deserving to be kept for a few years – 6 to 8 years, or more if one enjoys yellower, more liquorous, old wines.
Wine and food pairing: Perfect for all fish or terrines, and if matured in new barrels, for game terrines as well.
Service Temperature: 10° to 12° C.
Wine Description:
- Barrel-maturing: lithe and fruity as it grows older; its fresh fruit and white flower flavours develop into green, spicy or dry fruit notes.
- New barrel-maturing: for laying-down, with marked tannins and spicy flavours lightening in time but giving it a very good keeping potential.
