Bader Mimeur Chateau de Chassagne Montrachet Blanc 20

$171.00

3 Hectares of the total 5 hectares Bader Mimeur own of the Chateau de Chassagne Montrachet vineyard is planted with Chardonnay. On the map of Chassagne it’s labelled at ‘Champ Derriere’, referencing the ‘land behind’ the Chateau.

Nathalie describes the soil as Argile + Limestone. The site itself is fairly flat with deep soils in fact she mentions one of the best parts of the location of the vineyard is the ‘natural’ irrigation that occurs when the rain naturally flows off the higher sites on the slope and into their Domaine, very relevant given the recent warm/hot vintages in Burgundy. Average age of the vineyard is 25-30 years old.

Hand picked, whole-bunch pressed to tank. Left to settle overnight. Racked off gross lees to barrel, of which 20% is new. Wild fermented followed by malolactic. Left on fine lees for 12 months, battonage happens but frequency dependant on vintage. Moved to tank for another 4 months before bottling.
