Product Description

CHASSAGNE MONTRACHET GOICHOT

The Chassagne-Montrachet controlled appellation dates from 1937. It includes some plots in the neighboring village of Remigny which share the same soil conditions. At altitudes between 220 and 325 metres, the succession of rocks from the top down is first rauracien then callovien and finally argovien. The soil of the various « climats » (named plots with distinctive qualities) ranges from pebbly limestones, through marls, to sandy soils with a Jurassic basis. Handpicked harvest. Traditional fermentation in oak barrels (30% new casks). Maturation during 14 months in cellar for ageing, stored in barrels. Aromas of mayflower, acacia, and honeysuckle blend with verbena and hazelnut and in some cases toast or fresh butter. This wine boasts a profound minerality (flint). Age brings in notes of honey or ripe pear. Rounded and often opulent, its attack is instantaneous. On the palate, fleshiness is matched by mellowness, and both are equally persistent. Serving temperature: 12 to 14 °C
