Les Grands Terroirs Chenôvre 2019

The finesse of a timeless Blanc de Blancs!

This perfectly encapsulates our Crémant de Bourgogne Les Grands Terroirs Chenôvre 2019. A rare, vintage, 100% Chardonnay wine created from a plot selection of a few rows in our Côte de Beaune vineyard above Savigny-lès-Beaune.

It is a beautiful vineyard bordered by fields and forest, where flora and fauna flourish peacefully and vines in their prime consistently produce fresh, mineral Chardonnay grapes that still retain power and balance of flavours.

2019 VINTAGE: What weather, but what a vintage!

Healthy and beautifully ripe grapes. The delicacy of their aromas and their vibrant flavours herald a vintage with huge potential.

The vintage’s strength lies in nature’s ability to adapt to evolving, and in some cases, harsh weather conditions.

The year began with a mild winter, prompting extremely early budding. Spring, on the other hand, brought significant frosts (particularly overnight), which affected some plots in Côte de Beaune vineyards.

The flowering period in mid-June then took place in very changeable weather, and some bunches suffered from the alternating fair weather and rain.

Finally, the grapes were subjected to record high temperatures, which ultimately had an impact on the volumes harvested.

This vintage was enhanced by precise winemaking and maturation. Initially placed in oak barrels then matured on the lees for four years, Les Grands Terroirs Chenôvre 2019 offers up rich aromas of flowers, almonds, vanilla and hazelnut.

We recommend pairing it with seafood such as shellfish!
