Louis Jadot, Domaine des Heritiers, Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru 1990

Chardonnay 100%

Description

In general, ‘Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru’ is produced on the same climat (‘En Charlemagne’) as ‘Charlemagne Grand Cru.’ The soil is relatively steep and composed of very white limestone marls. Until 1966, Corton-Charlemagne came exclusively from the ‘Les Pougets’ climat and a small part of Corton-Charlemagne. This is the case with the Corton-Charlemagne from Domaine des Héritiers Louis Jadot, produced on the ‘Pougets’ climat, covering 1.88 hectares. The soil is brown limestone with slope debris-loam. The subsoil is mainly marl-limestone. The soil is well-drained and warms easily (south-facing exposure). Harvesting is done manually in small crates to preserve the integrity of the fruit. The grapes are then gently pressed and fermented in barrels from our cooperage, with one-third being new. Aging lasts for approximately 15 months on fine lees before preparation for bottling.
