AGE OF THE VINE
45 years old
The vines are located in the regional appellation area of the commune of Chassagne-Montrachet. Near to the appellation Chassagne-Montrachet 1er cru "Les Champs Gains”. Type Soil : Brown limestone on marl. The pruning is done in Guyot with different works during the green season. (Disbudding, trellising, topping).
: Manual harvest, sorting on vine then on a sorting table (depending on certain years, use of an optical sorter) and then at the winery.
The grapes after a light crushing and destemming are put whole in stainless steel tanks. A small part of the whole harvest can be incorporated depending on the state of the raw material. After a cold maceration of a few days, the active phase of fermentation takes place with temperature control. During this period, the wine is pumped over and/or punched down. After pneumatic pressing the wines are put into barrels (about 30% new wood) where the maturing process takes place. 14 months for this wine, during which time the malolactic fermentation took place. One month before bottling, the wine from the different barrels is assembled in vats. There is no gluing, just a light lenticular filtration before bottling. Some modifications on the overall technique can be made depending on the vintage. The bottling is done according to the lunar calendar.
Powerful nose of red fruits. Rich and fleshy on the palate, this wine offers us a beautiful tasty structure with finesse.
