Bouchard Pere et Fils Chevalier Montrachet Burgundy White 2001

Winemaker's Notes:

MONTES “Limited Selection” Pinot Noir Dark deep ruby in colour. The grapes come from the well reputed Casablanca and Leyda valleys. The wine is picked normally at the end of March when the grapes find it perfect ripeness. Using a prefermentative maceration in cold we obtain the gracious and typical aromas of Pinot Noir. Five months in French new and used oak. Intense and elegant nose with predominance of strawberries, and flowery violet hints that all together makes this Pinot a very good and elegant one. In the palate is well balanced, soft tannins, good level of acidity making it fresh. Nice color for a Pinot Noir. This wine is very low filtered, what makes the aromas and color very characteristic to Pinot Noir. Technical Data Description: It is a wine with a darker color than normal, considering it is a Pinot Noir. Flavors are intense, elegant with a clear predominance of strawberries, and flowery violet hints that all together makes this Pinot an elegant and very appealing wine. In the palate it is well balanced, soft tannins, good level of acidity, making it fresh but not light. Denomination of Origin: Casablanca and Leyda Valleys. Oak Aging: 5 months in French oak. Filtering: One soft filtering. Yield of Vineyard: About 8 tons per hectare. Grape Variety: Pinot Noir 100%. Cellaring Recommendations: Can be enjoyed now or cellared for a minimum of 3 years. Recommended Serving Temperature: 15º to 17ºC. Decanting: Not necessary.

The reputation of the Grands Vins fins de Bourgogne is based on two varieties alone : Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. As early as 1866, Dr Jules Guyot in his book on viticulture of the centre north of France, wrote that: " the essence of the fine wines of the Côte d'Or, is the grape variety, the Pineau Noir or Noirien for the red wines; the Pineau Blanc or Chardenet for the white wines ".
