GILLES MORAT CLIMAT SUR LA ROCHE 2017

GILLES MORAT CLIMAT SUR LA ROCHE 2017

90.91

From vines 350 – 400m above sea level, with plantings between 1967 and 1978, from the top of the southeast facing slope of the Roche de Vergisson.  Raising is as per Bélemnites – barrel fermented followed by 11 months in oak (10% approx. new) with bâtonnage every 1-2 weeks, and full malo.

Intense, long, and of amazing shape.  Aromatics and palate are an exercise of richness meets precision, delivering smoke, apples, citrus and mineral, with amazing length and mouthfeel.  Texturally invigorating and vivacious, a pinpoint and pristine expression of the Chardonnay grape.

Gilles Morat

Pure Pure Pouilly-Fuissé from a hidden jewel of Burgundy

Vergisson is a small but dramatic village, nestled in the hills some 400 meters high in the Mâcon.  A sweeping bowl of several kilometres across, it is punctuated by two striking rocky outcrops, with vines clinging to the steep hills underneath.  It is here that Gilles Morat and wife Joëlle farm their six hectares of Pouilly-Fuissé and Saint Véran vines.  Viticulture is organic with a focus on hands on, exceptional vineyard management, raising pure and pristine Chardonnay from this drop dead gorgeous, hidden nook of Burgundy.
