Work in the vineyard and in the cellar becomes more precise.

WITH THIS CHASSAGNE, YOU MAKE QUITE AN UNUSUAL WHITE WINE, DON’T YOU?

 

Alex Gambal

“Yes, these are several “sub names” that come under La Maltroie.  Our plot of 0.23 of a hectare is located in the centre of the village and rests upon predominantly limestone bedrock along with a mixture of white marl and iron ore stones.  Our parcel produces an extremely different wine from our other whites because when young it can seem rather austere. After at least 2 or 3 years it begins to reveal sensational purity with aromas of flint. Burgundy lovers enjoy its crystalline style and delicacy without it ever being extravagant.”

YOUR APPROACH TO VINE GROWING IS ALSO TAKING SHAPE, ISN’T IT?

 

Alex

“While continuing precise work in sustainable viticulture I have observed a great deal and talked to a lot of people.  Over the years our outlook has become more precise as has our desire to move towards an even more environmentally friendly type of viticulture.  By having more control over the quality of the grapes we now have top-quality raw material at our disposal, the key to making fine wines.”

SO, WHAT EXACTLY IS HAPPENING IN THE CELLAR?

 

Alexandre Brault

Over the past few years we have worked considerably on aspects of barrel aging by choosing different coopers and barrels.  The idea is always to make wines with more precision that reflect more clearly characteristics of their terroirs.”
