Saint Aubin 1er cru En Remilly

Domaine Amiot

2016

Burgundy

France

Terroir
Ideally located partly in the valley of Chassagne, our plots, benefit from a rich soil made of clay and limestone.
The low altitude and the south-east sunny exposure ensure water and nutrients that produce ripe, juicy and aromatic berries.
The old age and our pruning method are one of the reasons for limiting the quantity and providing a high quality regional Chardonnay.
Viticulture
We provide traditional manual culture work and care to the vine from november to July: Guyot pruning, ploughing, debudding for yield control, shot knitting and only when necessary spraying against the vine diseases.
The time and care we give to the vine is key to wine quality.
WinemakingFirst steps include crushing and fermentation in French oak barrels (1/3) and stainless steel tank (2/3).
Then comes bâtonnage and natural malolactic fermentation at cellar temperature (13 to 14° C).
After 12 months of ageing, the wine is pumped back to one tank for bottling preparation.
Ideal consumption3 years, depending on storage and transport
Ageing potential5-10 years - depending on storage and transport

To conclude, the right balance between freshness and ripeness is reached thanks to this number of weather épisodes that implied spring high températures, summer rains and return of sunshine in indian summer time.
