Chevalier Montrachet Grand Cru
The majestic Chevalier-Montrachet Grand Cru comes from 25 year old vines. It is always the most structured of Clerc’s wines, taking about 5 years to show its richness and complexity. Lush flavors of nutty, honeyed, and spicy fruit will appear, making this wine a perfect match with rich dishes.
About the Producer
Originally located on the main square in Puligny-Montrachet, the Clerc estate dates back to the 16th century. Upon his retirement in 2002, Bernard Clerc placed Vincent Girardin in charge of his vineyards and winemaking. He was eventually replaced by the talented Eric Germain. The domaine's 11 hectares of vineyards are centered around Puligny-Montrachet and include three Grands Crus.
Farming practices: The vineyards are farmed biodynamically. The vines are trained high to enhance photosynthesis.
