Joseph Drouhin, Marquis de Laguiche, Montrachet Grand Cru 1987 1,5L

Chardonnay 100%

Description

At every period of history, a few vineyards have been considered heirloom treasures for their incomparable quality. The Montrachet of Marquis de Laguiche belongs to this Pantheon. This property (2.06 hectares – 5.09 acres) is actually the largest parcel of the Montrachet vineyard and has been in the hands of the Laguiche family since 1776. The Drouhin family is in charge of its cultivation and vinification and, since 1947, has spread and preserved its worldwide renown. The word ‘rachet’ in Montrachet means infertile land, where nothing can grow. This wine comes from grapes and musts purchased from supply partners according to rigorous specifications. Grapes are harvested by hand and placed in open-work crates. If necessary, a careful sorting process is carried out. Slow pressing occurs in a pneumatic press, with the juice of the last press separated from the free-run juice. The juice is transferred into wine barrels after a brief settling. The alcoholic fermentation, as well as the malolactic fermentation and aging, take place in oak barrels. Approximately 30% of the barrels are new. The aging period lasts between 18 to 21 months.
