  • Opulent and refined with delicate floral, verbena, and hazelnut aromas preluding a rich, toasty, and buttery palate with balancing mineral undertones and a long, exquisite finish.

Gentle pressing took place in a pneumatic press which allows for perfect extraction of the juice without overpressing the grapes. The wine was vinified and aged in French oak barrels with a proportion of 20% new oak. Ageing took place on the lees, lasting for 10 to 15 months with occasional stirring contributing to the rich and complex texture.

In the southern part of the Cote de Beaune lies the appellation of Chassagne Montrachet, which was created in 1937. It sits on a fine broad hillside which brings out the very highest expression of Chardonnay in a style that is typically minerally yet succulent, and often floral with hints of hazelnut. The grapes for this cuvee come from the 1er Cru vineyards located at altitudes of between 220 and 325 meters, where vast marble quarries form a rocky front. The limestone-based soil is stony, and the complex terroir consists of Rauracian steep slopes, Callovian slopes, Argovian marls and Bathonian limestone from the summit down. The grapes are carefully harvested by hand and manually sorted.
