St-Aubin 1er Cru "En Remilly"

45 years

The vineyard is located near Saint Aubin and at the top of the Chevalier Montrachet and Le Montrachet Grands Crus vineyards, in the south of the Côte de Beaune. Soil: Limestone and a little clay. The subsoil is composed of different limestone layers (pebbles, marly soils). Medium slope with south exposure. Grapes variety: 100% chardonnay - Guyot pruning with different yearly works in the vineyard (pruning, trellising on wires/tying-in, thinning fruit-bunches).

Grapes are harvested by hand and sorted out when picking the grapes. The grapes are wholly pressed in a pneumatic press at a low pressure to get a slow extraction. After a cold settling and gentle racking of the must, the wine is put in French oak casks (15% of new oak). The primary and malolactic fermentations can then begin with wild yeasts

The ageing is long on fine lees during 14 months. 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 gently filtered before bottling it following the lunar calendar ("fruit” day to get a wine on freshness and minerality).

A wine very mineral with volume. A floral nose. In mouth, we can feel a well-integrated acidity and a long aftertaste.
