Tasting Notes

The Premier Cru vineyard “Les Gravières” sits on stony soils (hence the name) in the northern limits of Santenay, which abuts Chassagne Montrachet. It is considered among winemakers and critics as one of, if not the top climat of the appellation. The Chapelles farm their coveted parcel in lutte raisonnée fashion and harvest at extremely low yields—even going as far as cutting off clusters during the summer in order to concentrate and maximize the quality of grapes. In the winery, grapes are destemmed and aged in mostly neutral wood, typically never exceeding 20% new French oak. The wine is bottled unfiltered and is held back in their cellar for multiple years before release, allowing all of its components to integrate.

Provenance

IronGate.Wine is delighted to present the first tranche of a very fine Burgundian cellar from Toronto. It came to us from a fervent collector who took pride in his meticulously kept bottles and was always very acquainted with his investments in the region. His entire collection was professionally stored in Canada. While it is challenging to see his wines for sale, it is because he is relocating to Beaune permanently to live among the vines and terroir.
