PRODUCT INFORMATION



France, Bourgogne
APPELLATION:
Bourgogne
GRAPES:
100% Chardonnay
APPEARANCE:
Straw yellow colour
AROMA:
Bouquet of white peach, stone fruit, cold limestone and light lime flower aromas.
PALATE:
The palate is crisp and fresh with lovely crisp pear and peach notes that are kept in check by (yet another) killer line of acidity. There is outstanding tension here and those compact limestone soils are palpable on the stony finish.
SERVE:
10-12°C


Viticulture: Organic (certified Ecocert)

Vinification: Gentle pressing, indigenous yeast fermentation. Aged for 12 to 18 months in barrel (1/3 new), low sulfur additions only at bottling.

Site: Le Chapitre is 5 hectares (12.4 acres) with an elevation of 290 meters. It has a moderate to steep slope and faces east. When the Marsannay village appellation was created in 1987, the entire villages of Couchey and Marsannay, but only the southern part Chenôve was included. Because Le Chapitre lies north of the village, it was left out, yet, it is indisputably one of the greatest vineyards in this area. In his cellar, Sylvain pours it after his Clos du Roy. Though Le Chapitre may forever remain classified only as a Bourgogne, this does not reflect its rightful position in Burgundy’s hierarchy.

Soil: The gravelly, calcium-rich soil is light in texture and light, pinkish brown in color.

Geology: The majority of Le Chapitre sits on a thick layer of grèzes litées. This thick layer of unconsolidated limestone sits on top of the White Oolite limestone bedrock. Comblanchien limestone sits at the top of the slope above the vineyards and contributes to the slopewash.

CRITIC REVIEWS
Robert Parker90/100

Mingling notions of pear, peach and crisp green apple with nuances of smoke and fresh pastry, the 2017 Bourgogne Blanc Le Chapitre is medium to full-bodied, racy and precise, its elegantly textural attack segueing into a tensile core, concluding with a saline finish. William Kelley - 14/02/2020
