Chassagne Montrachet Chardonnay 2016

Chassagne-Montrachet Chardonnay 2016

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 2016 : After a cool and rainy winter and a frost episode in April, the weather at the end of spring was warmer but rainy which engendered a late flowering. The summer was warm and dry. September was warm and the harvest took place mid September under a bright sunshine. The white wines are precise and taut and develop very pure aromas. Vinification : after a mild pressing, this wine was vinified and aged for 10 to 14 months in oak casks in our cellars of the XVth century. Moderate proportion of new oak.

Tasting : Pale gold colour. Very fresh floral fragrances mixed with citrus fruit aromas and white fleshed fruit on a hint of minerality. Well-structured and complex. . Delicate and tight texture. Long and refreshing finish with a salty touch.

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