These grapes come from a single plot named Les Voillenots, planted in 1976 by Marc-Antonin`s grandfather. The old vine-roots penetrate deep down into fissures in the limestone bed-rock, bringing exhilarating character. Colour is pale lemon-golden, aromas generous, ripe and open. Some growers in Chassagne- Montrachet added tartaric acid in 2018, to help balance their wines, but Marc-Antonin had no need to do this – natural grape-sugars have given 13% of alcohol, and the natural acidity balances the wine beautifully. This is rich, soft and long (for drinking 2020-2025+).
