Notes from Vine Trail:

"Melon à queue rouge is an ancient strain of chardonnay (here from 50yo vines) grown by only three top producers in Arbois and Montigny. Aged in old foudres for 18 months and topped up, this has a pale gold colour, the mouthfeel of a fine white burgundy, restrained citrus fruits, a good cut of acidity, and is very saline on the finish

Taking over from father Lucien Aviet who retired five years ago was always going to be a tough act for his son Vincent to follow. Lucien, nicknamed Bacchus, is a local legend, blessed with foresight and with a wicked sense of humour, who loved to huddle around his wood-burning stove entertaining customers in his old characterful cellars filled with old foudres, cartoons and bons mots."
