Enologist and nephew of Marcel Lapierre, Philippe Pacalet has been producing top-quality wines since 2001. The key to the success of his négociant business is his desire to best express the terroir, his meticulous vinifications, non-interventionist methods and his discerning use of minimal doses of sulphur. His extremely natural wines have stunning balance and for the most part, excellent aging potential.
About the cuvée
This Chambolle-Musigny fulfils the promises of its appellation: elegance and sensuality. It will charm you with its delicate floral (rose, violet) and fruit (small red berries) flavours, and silky texture. Pinot Noir grapes from fifty-year-old vines are harvested by hand and vinified whole without sulphur. The grapeskin cap is punched down for a month (pigeage) to extract colour and refine the tannic structure. Natural yeasts trigger the alcoholic fermentation which precedes malolactic fermentation in Burgundy pièces (228-litre barrels). The wine is then aged for 15 months without further addition of sulfites.
