Jane Eyre Chassagne Montrachet 1er Cru Les Bondues 2019
Les Bondues is one of the more prestigious Chassagne-Montrachet Premier
Cru vineyards. This small, gently sloping, east-facing vineyard is located just
south of Chassagne-Montrachet village, looking across the road to Le Montrachet.
Mostly planted with Chardonnay, there is a small plot of Pinot Noir located in
the middle of the vineyard. The biodynamically farmed 90-year-old vines produce
low yields of tiny bunches.The fruit was handpicked with 30% left as whole bunch
and the remainder destemmed. Indigenous yeast fermentation took place in
stainless steel tanks where a combination of gentle pump overs and punchdowns
were employed as needed. The wine was matured in French oak barriques, a third
new before bottling.
