Estate: Prosper Maufoux has a long history of crafting high quality, terroir driven wines. Located in the village of Santenay, in the heart of the southern Côte d’Or, Prosper Maufoux founded the Burgundian estate in 1860. Today the company is headed by Eric Piffaut, whose family’s winemaking roots in Burgundy go back to 1898. Winemaker Nadine Gublin is at the helm, receiving many accolades, including being named the first female “Winemaker of the Year” by France’s leading wine magazine, La Revue du Vin de France.
Winemaking: Aged on fine lees for several months followed by quick bottling to “lock in the fruit”.
Tasting Notes: Pale gold in colour with aromas of fresh cut grass, pineapple, green apple and herbs. Pear, apple, peach, fresh herbs, and a trace of tropical fruit are accented by lively acidity, echoes of soft tropical fruit linger between each crisp sip. Wonderfully easy drinking on its own or with a wide variety of dishes.
Pairing Suggestions from the Winery: Roasted fish, sea food and soft cheeses.
