Domaine Amiot Chassagne-Montrachet Vieilles Vignes 2020

R1,466.00

Great aroma with clear barrel character, in the form of spices and buttery notes. There are also notes of citrus, yellow apples, white peach and white flowers. The taste is intense with a long elegant finish, wonderfully tight with ringing focused acidity.

Intensive manual vineyard care and culture from November to July, including pruning, ploughing, debudding, shot knitting, and selective spraying, emphasizing the importance of time and attention for high-quality wine production. Cellar process involves pre-fermentation cold maceration, followed by stainless steel tank fermentation, skin crushing, partial oak barrel aging, and natural malolactic fermentation at cellar temperature (13-14°C). After 12 months of ageing, the wine is pumped back to one tank for more ageing (6 months) before bottling.

Description

Since 1920 generation after generation the Amiot family have plunged their roots in the soil and terroir of Chassagne-Montrachet. Arsène and Flavie Amiot founders of the estate initiated a wine vocation that has reached the 4th generation represented today by their great grand sons Thierry and Fabrice. Guy their father who had given a new start to the family business since 1985 can be satisfied by the immortalization of the family tradition.Thanks to the maintenance of the business by the family sons who follow one another at the head of the Domaine the vineyards have remained owned by the family. This allows a more traditional viticulture free from any speculative spirit.
