Beaune Les Grèves 1er Cru 2011 SAQ 11946491

2012

Terroir

Beautiful vineyard plot overlooking the city of Beaune.Clay-limestone soil with a predominance of Grèves (small pebbles) and sand. The silica in the sand stores warmth from the sun and is an important factor in ripeness. The wines are noted for their elegance and fruit.

Vinification

The grapes were handpicked into small crates, then sorted and totally destemmed. The wine stayed on the skins for 20 days in temperature-controlled open oak vats. Pigeage (punching down the cap) was done twice a day during alcoholic fermentation.100% malolactic fermentation. Entirely aged in oak barrels.Duration of ageing: 19 months
