"The 2014 Chassagne-Montrachet comes from several south-east facing parcels with limestone clay soil. The vines average 40 years of age and are pruned to limit production by eliminating excess buds and green-harvesting. Harvest is done entirely by hand. The grapes are meticulously sorted both in the vineyard and the winery to eliminate unhealthy fruit. They are immediately gently pressed in a pneumatic press to retain maximum fruit and aromatic extraction. The must is kept in tanks at low temperatures for 7 days before transferal to oak barrels, of which 15% are new, for alcoholic fermentation and maturation. Only native yeasts, present on the grapes skins, are used. The Chassagne AOC matures in barrels on its lees with minimal battonage, or stirring of the lees to ensure the wine’s freshness. Bottling takes place after about 15 months for the AOC Chassagne in accordance with the lunar cycle. The Henri Clerc Chassagne-Montrachet AOC is exceptionally generous, elegant and full flavored for a village wine. The flavor is pure Chassagne, with a rich texture and notes of citrus and pear fruit, minerals and spice." -Winery
