Type: White Wine | Country: France | Region: Burgundy-Maconnais | Varietal: Chardonnay | Vintage: 2018
This single-vineyard site is in the southernmost village (Chaintré) in the Maconnais. The vines are young (of an average age of 10 years as of 2011). After a manual harvest, the grapes are pressed pneumatically and a long, slow, temperature-controlled fermentation occurs in the underground cellars of the domaine. Chapitalisation is avoided except when absolutely necessary. The wine is aged in stainless steel on the fine lees for eight months before undergoing a light filtration at the moment of bottling. The Macon-Chaintré “Le Clos” is consistently marked by notes of citrus fruits (lemon, orange, grapefruit) with a lively acidity, fruit blossom aromas and excellent balance.
