About Vincent Girardin 2017 Chassagne-Montrachet Vieilles Vignes

Grapes for this wine come from the "Les  Chaumes” parcel from vines averaging 50 years of age. It's a very low slope with  South East exposure. The 100%  Chardonnay grapes are  harvested by hand and sorted out during the grape picking. The grapes are lightly pressed in a pneumatic press at low pressure to get a slow extraction. After  a  gentle racking of the must, the wine is put in French oak casks (15% of new oak) for both alcoholic and malolactic fermentations with wild yeasts and wild anaerobic bacteria for 14 months with aging on fine lies. A month before the bottling, the wine is finally fined and lightly filtered.

This white Burgundy is full-bodied, powerful and rich with aromas of toasted almonds, ripe Gala apples, white flowers and honey. The balancing acidity is lively offering freshness and a long, lingering finish.
