Tasting Notes:

"Here too there is a distinctly exotic character though much less spiciness to the melon, mango, pear and floral-suffused aromas. The notably rounded flavors possess a pliant mouth feel while delivering similar depth on the sneaky long finale. This should drink well shortly after release." AM

Since 1920, generation after generation, the Amiot family have plunged their roots in the soil and terroir of Chassagne-Montrachet. Arsène and Flavie Amiot, founders of the estate, initiated a wine vocation that has reached the 4th generation represented today by their great grand sons, Thierry and Fabrice. Guy, their father, who had given a new start to the family business since 1985, can be satisfied by the immortalization of the family tradition.Thanks to the maintenance of the business by the family sons who follow one another at the head of the Domaine, the vineyards have remained owned by the family. This allows a more traditional viticulture, free from any speculative spirit.

Ideally located partly in the valley of Chassagne, our plots, benefit from a rich soil made of clay and limestone. The low altitude and the south-east sunny exposure ensure water and nutrients that produce ripe, juicy and aromatic berries. The old age and our pruning method are one of the reasons for limiting the quantity and providing a high quality regional Chardonnay.

First steps include crushing and fermentation in French oak barrels (1/3) and stainless steel tank (2/3). Then comes bâtonnage and natural malolactic fermentation at cellar temperature (13 to 14° C). After 12 months of ageing, the wine is pumped back to one tank for bottling preparation.
