Wine Description

(2013 Vintage) The vines are around the village of Meursault, above the Premier Cru parcel "Les Genevrières”. Soil : Clay and limestone with a little bit more chalk. The slope is strong. East exposure. 100% Chardonnay - Guyot pruning with different seasonal processes in the vineyard (pruning, trellising on wires/tying-in, thinning fruit-bunches). The grapes are harvested by hand and sorted. They are lightly pressed then in a pneumatic press at a low pressure to get a slow extraction. After a gentle racking of the must, the wine is put in French oak casks of 228 liters (15% of new oak) for both of alcoholic and malolactic fermentations with wild yeasts and wild anaerobic bacteria during 16 months. Ageing on fine lees. A month before the bottling, the wine from the different barrels is put in a stainless steel tank to make the blend. The wine is finally fined and lightly filtered before bottling it according to the lunar calendar ("fruit” day).
