Chantal Lescure, Cote de Beaune Blanc La Grande Chatelaine 2020Regular price $50.00 Save $-50.00
The Lescure Domaine is among the newer winemaking families, but just as fierce. Chantal Lescure was begun in 1975 by Chantal and her husband Xavier. They claimed 18 hectares of land strewn throughout Chambolle-Musigny in the Cote de Nuits and the Volnay in Cote de Beaune. Today their two sons coordinate the running of the estate and farm from parcels running from Dijon in the north to Meursault in the south. The Domaine takes organic farming very seriously, as they have been practicing full organics since 2000; they're even certified by Ecocert.
“La Grande Chatelaine” is the name of this cooler plot that’s a bit removed from the rest of the prized Beaune plots. The vines are about 40 years old here. The aging is a lengthier style with up to 8 months of fermentation, and then another 12 to 15 months aging in neutral barrels.
