Presentation

The wine
The origins of the grapes used to produce this cuvee make it more a wine of guard than a wine to consume quickly unlike the majority of Burgundy product that are generally more on the fruit than on the tension and structure.
Burgundy Grands Chaillots will have to be classified in the Burgundy guard category.
Often of a beautiful structure, it is a wine that surprises by its length and its behavior.
The mouth is often floral at first ending on more spicy notes with slightly firmer tannins.
Situation
Our parcel is 0.8 ha planted in 1986.
We purchase grapes from old vines between 45 and 80 years old.
