A family domaine of 40 acres in Chassagne-Montrachet producing from two estate villages, Chassagne-Montrachet and Santenay.
• Soil: solid limestone with sand and small stones. Pinot Noir vineyards have clay.
• Production: 60% White, 40% red. Jean Pierre is ‘defending’ Pinot Noir in Chassagne, a region that makes mostly Chardonnay (about 80%)
• Farming is sustainable since 1998, with plowing and work between vines.
Darker crimson and the bouquet offers a darker berry fruit as well, less floral, more muscle. Dark raspberry. Jean-Pierre thinks of this vineyard as Côte de Nuits in configuration, reminding him of Chambolle. Succulent long and deep. Plenty of guts here, rather more solid than most Chambolles I would suggest.
