Vincent Girardin Meursault Les Narvaux 2014
The vines are around the village of Meursault, above the Premier Cru parcel "Les Genevrières”. Soil : Clay and limestone with a little bit more chalk. The slope is strong. East exposure. 100% Chardonnay - Guyot pruning with different seasonal processes in the vineyard (pruning, trellising on wires/tying-in, thinning fruit-bunches).
The grapes are harvested by hand and sorted. They are lightly pressed then in a pneumatic press at a low pressure to get a slow extraction. After a gentle racking of the must, the wine is put in French oak casks of 228 liters (15% of new oak) for both of alcoholic and malolactic fermentations with wild yeasts and wild anaerobic bacteria during 16 months.
