Some of the oldest vines in Clos Marey-Monge, Chantrerie’s 2.41hectares of marly-clay soils produce a dark, rich and deep PinotNoir with a sweet palate. Known as the spirit of our vineyard, this old Lady benefits from one of the largest internal surfaces of clay in the Côte d’Or, worthy of a Grand Cru, just behind Simone’s record.
Hand-harvested grapes, hand-sorted on a vibrating table. 100% de-stemmed, placed into stainless steel fermentation vats by gravity flow. Weeks-long maceration, minimal pumping-over and punching-down. Pressing in pneumatic press. Placed in French oak barrels for aging on fine lees. Light filtration.
Tasting Notes: Behind its intense ruby-purple color, our Chantrerie 2018 hides an aromatic bouquet marked by flowers and black fruits, revealing the feminine side of Pommard. On the palate, the tannins are dense and velvety. Lively and energetic, this exceptional cuvée has a long, mineral finish with saline notes. Generous and undeniably elegant, it will evolve gracefully over the coming decades.
