This wine is a blend of two climats from the terroir of Santenay: ‘Sous la roche’ (under the rock) said to be one of the best slopes to grow Chardonnay, due in part to its chalky clay marl soils and southerly aspect; and ‘Comme Dessus’ i.e. just to the other side of the 1er Cru of La Comme. Vines are 30-40 years of age and grown sustainably, limiting the use of phytosanitary chemicals and preferring tillage to herbicides. Harvest is by hand with grapes sorted in the vineyard and placed directly in small drilled boxes, avoiding maceration before winemaking and limiting handling. Once gently pressed in the cellars in the heart of Chassagne-Montrachet, the wines are matured for fourteen months in French oak, 20% of which is new.
