Classic, old style white Burgundy from a top producer. About as good as generic white Burgundy gets. The fruit comes from several hillside sites in the villages of Puligny and Meursault, either from just outside the AOC or from young vines within the AOC. The grapes are meticulously sorted both in the vineyard and the winery to eliminate unhealthy fruit. They are immediately gently pressed in a pneumatic press to retain maximum fruit and aromatic extraction. The must is kept in tanks at low temperatures for 7 days before being transferred to 500 liters oak barrels (of which 10% are new) for alcoholic fermentation and maturation. Only native yeasts present on the grapes skins are used. The wine matures in barrels on its lees with minimal bâtonnage (stirring of the lees) to ensure freshness. Bottling takes place after about 12 months, in accordance with the lunar cycle. It offers all the characteristics that have made the Clerc white Burgundies so widely appreciated: generous and focused fruit and texture, pure pear and green apple flavors, and a long, fresh finish. It represents outstanding value and is a fine introduction to the house style.
