Château Pierre-Bise Quarts de Chaume 2016

$105.00

The top cuvée. One for the purist terroirists rather than the hedonists. The finished blend is almost 100% botrytised fruit and has residual sugar of 175 g/l. The nose is admirably high-toned and full of toasted-honeyed nuts, with a bed of grilled and dried berry fruits. The palate shows great substance and polish, with a velvety, creamed-fruit texture, polished and weighty, cut through by a fresh acid bite. This is imposing, textural, majestic even, with tangible weight and an impressive length. It remains fresh throughout, though, and it retains a sense of purity. An excellent cuvée and an absolute must for the cellar.

Les Preuses is the Grand Cru of Chablis at the Northern end of the Grand Cru area. It is one of the smallest Grand Cru Climat and covers 11.4 ha. The vines selected by Chanson are ideally located right in the heart of the plot. This brings to the wine the specific minerality of this terroir.

Summer was warm with several heat waves which brought stormy episodes at the right moment. This enabled the vineyards to follow their normal biological cycle.

Vinification : after a mild pressing, this wine was vinified and aged for 12 months in oak casks in our cellars of the XVth century. Moderate proportion of new oak.

The Taste: Gold colour. Floral fragrances mixed with citrus fruit aromas. Expressive minerality. Well balanced and precise. Delicate. Refreshing and slightly salty aftertaste. Score : 91/100 BURGHOUND – 16.5/20 JANCIS ROBINSON

Bright and refreshing, this opens with scents of honeysuckle, jasmine, pear and yellow stone fruit. The round but lively palate offers peach, green apple and a hint of white almond. Its fragrance and flavour are also enhanced by the small amount of CO2 maintained from the fermentation, which also helps to make up for the varietal’s typically low acidity.
