Chassagne Montrachet Chardonnay 2011

Chassagne-Montrachet Chardonnay 2011

Grape Variety : Chardonnay

Soil : Clay and limestone

Site : Three plots of vineyards from selected "vignerons", ideally located in the heart of the village of Chassagne Montrachet - close to the Premiers Crus area. South, South-East orientation.

The Vintage 2011 : After a very cold winter and a demanding spring, the hot summer was regularly interrupted by rainy intervals which early September gave way to a bright and warm weather, that speeded up the maturation of the grapes. Harvest began in the last days of September under a bright sunshine. Meticulous vinifications and aging have enabled us to tame the vibrant acidity of the white wines. Aging in oak during 13 months.

Tasting : Pale gold colour. Delicate floral fragrances mixed with exotic fruit aromas and spices. Beautiful vanilla note. Well-structured and complex. Chunky with a beautiful texture. Very pure fruit. Long and generous aftertaste.

Food pairing : To be enjoyed with foie gras, grilled fish, white meat and strong cheeses (Epoisses, Roquefort and Munster).
