Winemaker’s Notes

Le Montrachet is situated to the south of the Côte de Beaune, on both villages of Puligny Montrachet and Chassagne Montrachet (like the Batard Montrachet Grand Cru). The terroir is extremely chalky with a lot of stones, perfectly drained and easy to overheat with south-south-eastern exposition.

The Montrachet is produced with Chardonnay. Grapes are harvested by hand and put in small cases in order not to damage the fruits. Grapes are pressed softly, they ferment in oak barrels produced by our cooperage. 1/3 are new barrels. Aging usually lasts 15 months on fine lies before bottling.

Mixed salads, soja salad, vegetable tempura, seafood , sushis, nems, cheviche, salmon tartar, vegetarian cuisine : vegetable tart, fennel, zucchini fritters, vegetable gratin, wok noodles, vegan burger, fish & chips, chicken yakitori, escargots, oeuf en meurette, frog legs with parsley, goat cheese.

The 2016 Montrachet Grand Cru has an intense bouquet with notes of flint, smoke, apple blossom and just a hint of dried apricot, well defined and seeming to expand with aeration. The palate is well balanced with an intense opening that fortunately does not compromise the finesse and elegance of this Montrachet. It almost sashays along, minding its own business, but the acidity is extremely well judged and the finish shows superb precision. Excellent.
