Chassagne-Montrachet Vieilles Vignes

50 years old

the vineyards are located near the village of Chassagne Montrachet, in the south of the Côte de Beaune, Burgundy. The grapes come from the "Les Chaumes” parcel for this cuvée "Vieilles Vignes”. Soil : Clay and limestone. The slope is very low. South East exposure. 100% Chardonnay - Guyot pruning with different seasonal processes in the vineyard (pruning, trellising on wires/tying-in, thinning fruit-bunches).

The grapes are harvested by hand and sorted out when picking the grapes. They are lightly pressed then in a pneumatic press at a low pressure to get a slow extraction. After a gentle racking of the must, the wine is put in French oak casks of 228 liters (15% of new oak) for both of alcoholic and malolactic fermentations with wild yeasts and wild anaerobic bacteria during 14 months.

Ageing on fine lies. A month before the bottling, the wine from the different barrels is put in a stainless steel tank to make the blend. The wine is finally fined and lightly filtered before bottling it according to the lunar calendar ("fruit day”).

Full-bodied, powerful and rich. Aromas of toasted almonds, ripe apples, white flowers and honey. They have remarkable persistence.

Poultry, white meat and fish with sauce.
