Organic farming, minimal sulphur at bottling
100% Chardonnay - half of the grapes were purchased from a certified organic grower in Corpeau, just south of Puligny-Montrachet. The other half were from Paul and Willy's vineyard in Chassey-le-Camp near Santenay. They began conversion of this vineyard to organic in 2017. Both soils are clay and limestone, quite sandy. Direct press, fermentation in old barrels for one year. No battonage, no fining or filtration. It was quite a slow fermentation that ended the following Spring, as they don't have temperature control - however this has contributed to extra complexity in the wine. - Notes from the importer, Ryan Larkin.
