Joseph Drouhin Chassagne-Montrachet 2017 75cl


Joseph Drouhin Chassagne-Montrachet 2017 White Wine is made from exclusively Chardonnay from Chassagne-Montrachet, located South of the Cote de Beaune. During vinification, the pressing is slow, as to respect the fruit and maintain premium quality juice. The wine is aged in oak barrels for 12 months.

Grape: Chardonnay
The wines from the Côte d'Or had excellent levels of maturity, good sugar/acid balance and a satisfactory health status. The potential degrees were normal to high. We took advantage of the excellent state of the grapes to use indigenous yeasts during alcoholic fermentations. They lasted about 3 weeks during which we practiced light "batonnage” (lees stirring). The oak ageing is very soft, the lees are of good quality and the ageing will continue in good conditions.
A generous and elegant wine. Light golden colour. Intense nose of flower, brioche and candied lemon aromas, evolving towards nuances of grilled hazelnut and spice as the wine matures. On the palate, the wine is straightforward, with a nice texture and finesse. It has a long aftertaste where floral and gingerbread notes dominate.

Throughout the ageing process, decisions are taken only after careful evaluation. As with every Joseph Drouhin wine, absolute priority is given to the true expression of terroir and character of the vintage.
