TASTING NOTES
The Domaine has a dozen plots in Chambolle, spread over several plots in the village, totalling 1.80 hectares. Two thirds of the vines are over 60 years old and the average yield is 38-40 hl/ha. The two main plots, Condemennes and Clos de l'Orme, are situated halfway up the hill on a soil consisting of a thick layer of limestone gravel and well drained. The grapes are harvested by hand and placed in perforated boxes; a first sorting is carried out in the vineyard and a second in the cellar. The grapes are placed in whole vats where a long period of pre-fermentation or cold maceration begins, lasting an average of 10 days at 10°C. Fermentation is triggered naturally with indigenous yeasts. Racking of the corks is initially daily, and then gradually decreases in frequency and intensity. The overall duration of the wine's stay in the tank is 20-23 days. A week of decanting is followed by maturation on the lees for 10-14 months in oak barrels, 50% of which are new. In this case, the focus on wood is very high, in fact the oak from central France undergoes a gentle, low-intensity toasting. The wine is racked two months before bottling and is produced without ageing, but after a light coarse filtration. The Domaine seeks to bring out the full expression of the fruity and varietal aromas. The prolonged period of ageing in vats allows the colour potential and soft, silky tannins to be perfectly extracted. The fineness of the wine's ageing enhances its roundness and adds subtle oak notes. The final blend of Chambolle, from a mosaic of terroirs, shows a typical character, very representative of the appellation: intense red berry aromas, elegance and delicacy, together with roundness and softness. Chambolle is a feminine wine that shows its charming and pleasant character right from the start and can therefore be enjoyed quite young, e.g. with poultry or grilled red meat. After several years of bottle ageing, its powerful character softens and develops spicy and ripe fruit aromas. It can then be enjoyed with a slow-cooked leg of lamb.
