    Cuvée presentation

    Benoit Ente has here created a well-made Chassagne-Montrachet which highlights the precision of his savoir-faire. The nose reveals a bouquet rich in citrus and deepened by toasted hints. The ample, almost milky, texture is lifted by a lovely acidity.

    Information about domain Benoit Ente

    You will already be familiar with Arnaud Ente, an iconic figure of the Meursault appellation. Benoit Ente is his brother, and is blessed with the same talents of vigneron and winemaker. In 1997, Benoit and Arnaud Ente each inherited three hectares of vines from their grandfather. After buying new parcels in 2014, Benoit Ente expanded his domain which now covers six hectares. It is farmed sustainably, with Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Aligoté. The soils are looked after without chemical fertilisers or weedkillers. Harvests are manual and small cases are used to transport the grapes, so that the grapes don't get crushed on their way back to the winery. Vinifications are spread over the course of 18 months, and élevage – in vats and barrels – lasts one year.
