 100% Chardonnay from 80-year-old vines in the heart of Bourgogne, the tiny lieu-dit Grand Cru of "Le Charlemagne". The vineyard sits on a South-facing slope on rocky soils characterized by white marlstone and sandstone, producing just about two barrels of this in the best vintages. Work in the vineyard is strictly biodynamic, while the grapes are spontaneously fermented very slowly. The wine then sees an elevage in large barrels for at least 18 months on the lees, before being bottled with no fining, filtration and just a tiny hint of SO2.
