Bader Mimeur Chateau de Chassagne Montrachet Rouge 2019
2 Hectares of the total 5 hectares Bader Mimeur own of the Chateau de Chassagne Montrachet vineyard is planted with Pinot Noir. 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.
The Pinot Noir plantings range from 55 to 80 years old.
Hand picked. 100% destemmed. Fermented in wooden open top vats. 2 to 3 weeks marceration. Pressed off to barrel of which 25% are new. 12 months elevage in barrel then transferred to tank for a further 6 months before bottling.
