Grape variety: Chardonnay
Surface area: 0.091 ha
Soil: Clay and limestone
Vine age: 90 years old
Made up of two micro-plots totalling only two “ouvrées”, our Montrachet is a gift from nature. (An “ouvrée” is about 4.28 acres, corresponding to the area supposedly ploughed by a farmer in one day in the Middle Ages.) Ideally facing south and planted in the 1920s on stony soil, the climate produces tiny berries bursting with flavour.
Ideal drinking window of 10-15 years – variable depending on transport and storage conditions.
Ageing potential of 25 years – variable according to transport and storage conditions.
