This wine, produced in small quantities, comes from a 22-ares plot, planted with old Aligoté vines, but with any missing vines replaced by Chardonnay. It therefore subtly combines the freshness of the Aligoté grape with the smoothness and richness of the Chardonnay.
When he took over the domaine, Benoît Eschard fell in love with this atypical wine, without an AOC classfiication, and he decided to age it in oak barrels. He then renamed it “l’Envol” (the flight), as a nod to his change of lifestyle and vocational retraining.

Note : 91/100 - Dominante d’aligoté complété de chardonnay dans l’Envol, blanc très sapide et droit, qui a parfaitement intégré son élevage et s’épanouit en une finale bien persistante
