Maison Géraldine Loise, Géraldine Lochet, Rosey:

Located in Rosey, in a charming medieval village, 3 km from Givry, in the Chalonnaise coast Géraldine Louise was started by Geraldine Lochet in 2016. After two courses in viticulture and oenology in Beaune, Géraldine Lochet untook 10 harvests in the Côte Chalonnaise at Château Cary Potet in Buxy where she learnt her skills that she applies to her winemaking today. Her ambition then lead her to the Côte de Beaune, to the Colin estate in Chassagne-Montrachet, where, as cellar master, for 7 years, she was responsible for monitoring the development of the wines in the cellar.

Her adventures then lead her to the Côte de Beaune, to the Colin estate in Chassagne-Montrachet, where, as cellar master, for 7 years, she will be responsible for religiously monitoring the development of the wines in the cellar.

The nose is fresh, fruity, racy and offers elegance. It reveals notes of crunchy peach, pear and small notes of mirabelle plum associated with subtle hints of exotic fruits, quince and an imperceptible hint of flowers (in the background). The palate is fruity, fresh, mineral (racy minerality), well-balanced, racy and offers a good definition, a beautiful acid frame, fleshiness, delicacy as well as finesse. On the palate this wine expresses notes of juicy / crunchy vine peach, pear and small notes of citrus associated with touches of juicy mirabelle plum as well as a subtle hint of quenette.
