Les Feusselottes premier cru

Appellation: Premier Cru
Area under vine: 0.4221 hectares (9.86 ouvrées)
Location: The part of the vineyard bordering on the village of Chambolle-Musigny
Sun exposure: South-east facing.
Soil: Les Feusselottes is located in the heart of the village. The soil contains limestone and clay, and is very stony. Feusselottes means "little holes" or "little cavities". The soil is fairly shallow, which tends to account for the wine's mineral aftertaste.  
Grape variety: 100% Pinot Noir
When planted: 33% in 1920 and 33% in 1926, and 33% in 1966.
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: A marked bouquet of red fruit and wild strawberries in its youth.  This climat can be relied on for elegance and finesse. A wonderful, and highly typical Chambolle-Musigny.
