Grape Variety : Chardonnay
Soil : Clay and limestone on the famous stone of Chassagne.
Site : Our 2 hectares of Premiers Cru vineyard "Les Chenevottes" is located next door to the famous Terroir "Le Montrachet". The soil is mostly constituted of clay and limestone with the famous stone of Chassagne and is clearly mineral. The vineyards have a peculiar aspect. They are constituted of small blocs entangled into each other. With its East exposure, on the road to Saint Aubin, this plot benefits from the fresh air which conveys to the wine very pure and refreshing aromas.
The Vintage 2019 : After a mild winter, spring settled down with important variations of temperatures and abundant rain which engendered millerandage (small berries). Summer was warm punctuated by several heat waves and a few thunderstorms épisodes which brought some water. The harvest started mid september under a bright sunshine. After a mild pressing, the wines are aged in oak casks for a period of 12 up to 14 months in our XVth century cellar. Moderate use of new oak.
Tasting : Pale gold colour. Floral fragrances mixed with intense aromas of pale fleshed fruit on a hint of vanilla and spices. Complex and well-structured. Tight texture. Well-crafted oak note. Long and elegant finish. SCORE : 90-93 JASPER MORRIS
Food pairing : To be enjoyed with "foie gras", seafood, white meat and all sorts of cheeses and especially our local cheeses (Citeaux, Epoisses).
