This village appellation comes from the Côte de Beaune, in France’s Côte d’Or department. It includes 55 Premier Cru vineyards. The grapes for this wine were grown in the villages of Chassagne-Montrachet and Remigny. 197,66 ha are planted with Chardonnay and 106,45 ha with Pinot Noir.
Between 220 and 325 metres, the terrain consists of Rauracian steep slopes, Callovian slopes, Argovian marls and Bathonian limestone from the summit down. The limestone based soil is stony.
The grapes were hand-picked and sorted manually as soon as they arrived at the winery. They were then pressed in a pneumatic press which allows for perfect extraction of the juices without over pressing the grapes. Vinification and ageing took place in wooden barrels with a proportion of 20% new oak. The wine was aged on the lees between 10 and 15 months with occasional stirring.
COLOUR: Golden with a beautiful clarity.
NOSE: Floral aromas (hawthorn, acacia and honeysuckle) mingle with verbena and hazelnut. The flint reminds us of the deep minerality of a wine that is sometimes toasted and spontaneously buttery fresh.
PALATE: Opulent, round and fat. Very good persistence.
To be tasted with poultry in sauce, lobster, crayfish, asian dishes and cheeses like Comté.
