Chambolle-Musigny 2010 x 12
Area of production and geology: Situated on the village territory of Chambolle Musigny in the Cote de Nuits. The soils are brown calcareous on hard Bajocian limestone. Hillsides facing East South East
Vinification: The grapes are picked manually into 30-odd kilogram harvesting crates and transported as quickly as possible to the winery, so as to avoid heat, rain, or bruising of the grapes. The contents of the cases then go through the sorting table, to get rid of stones, leaves, green bunches (verjux), etc... According to the nature of the vintage, 85 to 100% of the harvest is destemned so as to avoid excessive bitterness from the stalks. Fermentation with maceration then goes on for 15 to 20 days in conical vats equipped with radiators for thermoregulation. This allows control of fermentation temperatures and has direct influence on aromas and colour extraction. Finally, gentle pressing makes way for the breeding and elegance of the wine
Grapes: 100% Pinot Noir
