2016 Domaine Christophe Lepage Bourgogne Blanc
Aromas of lemon, lime, stone fruit and citrus blossoms greet the nose. On the palate the wine is crisp and clean with high toned acidity. Great verve with minerality and a core of sweet fruit. Pair it with Charcuterie, goat cheese, and fish with white sauce.

Domaine Christophe Lepage consists of only 6.2 acres, planted to Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Pinot Gris. The slopes, facing south/southeast overlook the valley of the Yonne and the town of Joigny. They are protected from the north by a forested plateau and the river below moderates the micro-climate, providing some insurance against frost. The subsoils are chalky, dating from the Upper Cretacious era, and are covered with flinty clay.
In 1995, the Côte St. Jacques was singled out as the finest single vineyard site around the village of Joigny and it is one of the few Auxerrois appellations that are permitted to append their names to the Bourgogne title.
