St-Aubin 1er cru "Les Murgers des Dents de Chien"

45 years old

The vineyard is located near the Saint Aubin village and at the top of the Chevalier Montrachet and Le Montrachet Grands Crus vineyard, 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. 100% chardonnay - Guyot pruning with different yearly works 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. 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 (20% 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

One of the best value for a white from the Côte de Beaune. A wine with plenty of minerality and freshness. A floral nose. In mouth, we can feel a well-integrated acidity and a long aftertaste. A full wine.

Fish, shellfish or creamy white meat.
