Saint-Aubin Meursault Premier Cru La Piece Sous Le Bois

Located south of Meursault and just below the Blagny woods, this Premier Cru has the advantage of a high position on the slope, yet it benefits from the freshness and moisture provided by the nearby woodland. These features, in conjunction with the south-facing aspect and the sloping nature of the plot, ensure good crop development along with adequate drainage.

The analysis of the soils reveals two interesting characteristics. The upper part of the plot is composed of brown limestone soils, rich in clay and iron oxide that bestow power and crispness to the wine along with floral and spicy notes. The lower part of the vineyard comprises qualitative elements such as an active system of organic and mineral compounds which bring both freshness and aromatic complexity.

VINIFICATION

Following harvesting, the whole crop is pressed as bunches using a pneumatic press. The must then undergoes static clarification at 12°C for a period of about 24 hours before going into French oak barrels for fermentation. Both alcoholic and malolactic fermentation are carried out in the barrel, 20% of the barrels are new oak. The resulting wine is matured on the lees for a further 16 months.
