Wine Description

(2011 Vintage) Harvested by hand, carried by small trailers which unload the grapes by vibration to avoid crushing, then we use a sorting table to eliminate unripe or damaged grapes. Pneumatic winepress. Cool racking. The winemaking and aging : 65% in stainless steel vats with temperature-controlled fermentation. 35% in barrels (90% in 1,2 and 3 years old barrels, 10% in new and 1 year old barrels) for a period of 6 months.

    tried at altaya tasting 2010 - Christian Moreau has 5 of 7 grand cru vineyards in Chablis - all southern facing so more tropical fruit/less steely than the Chablis we are used to. this had balance of tropical fruit and steely/high acidity
