Domaine Darviot-Perrin 1er Cru Chassagne-Montrachet Les Blanchots Dessus Blanc 2017
Winery: "It is an emphasis on the work in the vineyard which makes the difference at Darviot-Perrin. The vineyards are tended virtually organically which is just a small part of making fine Burgundy. The vital element is bringing healthy, ripe grapes to the presses and vats. Vinification is important, but cannot replace impeccable fruit from the vineyard. “Minimal intervention” is the watchword in the cellar, which is naturally cold and moist. Malolactic fermentations frequently take almost a year to complete, enhancing the complexity and quality of the wines.
Golden color with green tints. The bouquet is fresh and floral yet complex, with predominant notes of honeysuckle. On the palate, this wine is discreet at the start, but opens up to a lovely brilliance and long-lasting finish."
