Prima Vinae Presents… Chassagne-Montrachet Blanc 1er Cru Les Chenevottes 2012 Au Pied du Mont Chauve
The Au Pied du Mont Chauve domaine represents 35 hectares of admirable terroirs in the Burgundy region, working primarily with Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, reputed for their style and elegance.
This vineyard is on soil that is around fifty-five centimetres deep, after which comes a hard and stony horizon. The soil is red, a sign of iron oxide that can be linked to vestiges formed by the hardening of the soil particular to regions that were tropical many millions of years ago. Five plots, shared between a variety of diverse zones in the appellation make up this cuvée.
According to Roger Voss – Wine Enthusiast (May 2016), “Structured and tight, this mineral-driven wine is still in its initial stages of development. It has crisp acidity, layers of spicy wood and a rich palate. Apples and white peach emerge from the firm, young structure. Drink this wine from 2018. The vineyard is next door to the Grand Cru Montrachet vines.”
