Bourgogne Côte d’Or ‘Clos de Six Ouvrées’ Chardonnay 2019 – MonopoleCoeur
This tiny walled vineyard (.38 ha) of Chardonnay produces only about six to eight barrels of wine per year. Leaner than ‘La Monatine,’ with a saltier touch. Soils here are also clay-limestone but contain some marl as well; 50 year-old vines on average. Fruit is handpicked, direct pressed, and spontaneously fermented in neutral barrels, with 18 months’ élevage in neutral wood following. The wine is racked into steel tanks for blending and rests for one month before bottling.
