Chénas Les Petites Pierres Gandelins, 2018 | Mâconnais, Burgundy
Farming: Certified organic
Tasting Note: A ripe nose of red fruit, black cherry and wild strawberry with fresh earth and mint notes. The palate bursts with sweet fruit with lots of attack, bright acidity with a really taut, long finish. Elegant and silky textured.
Background: This is a new cuvée using certified organic fruit from two parcels in Chénas. Les Petites Pierres comes from 60 year-old vines on granite stones and clay over granite bedrock and Gandelins from 80 year-old vines in a south-facing vineyard on decomposed granite, bordering Moulin-à-Vent. No added SO2.
Serving: Room temp (15 - 17 °C).
