2021 Chantereves, Bourgogne Rouge Hautes Cotes de Beaune Paris L`Hopital, Burgundy, France
not elligble for case discount
Vine Age: 45+ years
Terroir: Paris l'Hôpital is a unique site of dark, sandy granites, just west of Maranges.
Viticulture (négoce): Lutte raisonnée. The middle of the rows are not tilled here, as the sandy steep slopes are prone to erosion.
Vinification: 100% whole-cluster since 2014, ambient yeast fermentation with a pied de cuve, no mechanical pump-overs, limited foot punch-downs, aged two winters in 228L barrels (very little new oak). Minimal SO2 addition at harvest, then only if needed (during aging and before bottling), no fining, no filtration.
