Les Amoureuses premier cru

Appellation: Premier Cru
Area under vine: 0.1965 hectares (4.59 ouvrées)
Location: Situated in the upper part of the vineyard, bordered on the south-west by Le Musigny
Sun exposure: South-east facing.
Soil: The topsoil consists of a layer of red clay 30-50 cm deep on a fisssured compact limestone slab into which the vine roots nevertheless manage to sink in an altogether impressive way. The wine's complexity perfectly reflects the soil's dual nature.
Grape variety: 100% Pinot Noir
When planted: 50% in 1976 and 50% in 1977
Vineyard: The vines are grown without the use of pesticides or insecticides, and only natural fertiliser (manure) is used. Ploughing keeps the soil loose and well-aerated, and no weed killers are applied.
Fermentation: The grapes are hand picked into small crates, sorted in the vat room and 100% destemmed. Cold fermentation for 7 days is followed by temperature-controlled alcoholic fermentation with two pigeages (punching the cap) a day and maceration for 21 days.
Barrel-ageing: Aged on the lees in oak barrels (30% new) for 15 months, with late-occurring, natural malolactic fermentation. Neither fined nor filtered. Racked and bottled by gravity flow.
Tasting notes: Closed when young, Les Amoureuses develops and ages very gracefully. The texture is quite fine, enhanced by firm, yet elegant tannin. The wine's delicacy is the perfect illustration of what one hopes to find in this excellent premier cru.
