Besides its bright notes of lemon curd, lime zest, apple juice and buttered bread, Le Blanc's nose will gently hits your olfactory receptors with its lightly flinty fragrance which is typical from Lantignié's blue rocks.
While 2021 tasted like Jura, the warmer 2022 vintage took Le Blanc down the Burgundy road. Floral, generous with notes of vanilla and a delicate butter touch.

Tech facts: 

Vinification: Whole bunches are handpicked in small crates, strict selection in the vineyard, followed by a very gentle and slow pressing using the château’s centuries-old vertical press. The press also yields a naturally clear must that does not need to be filtered or clarified. Fermentation begins with a pied de cuve of native yeasts in neutral fiberglass containers. The wine spends 12 months on the lees in old oak demi muids. No malolactic fermentation.

Terroir: Cuvée Le Blanc is a single vineyard at 300m planted to guyot-trained chardonnay by Cosima’s parents in 2006. The parcel is south/southwest facing with pierres bleues (blueschist) soils. 15 years old vines. 40 Hl/Ha yield.
Cosima began the conversion of all 6ha of family vineyards to organic farming in 2019, utilising agroforestry and cover crops to create an integrated landscape that brings nature into the vineyards. She utilizes 15 different cover crops, rotating and adapting each to suit the needs of the parcel, which creates natural biodiversity and a true polyculture with healthy, living soil, which also counteracts erosion.
