Write a Review

Vintage: 2016

Varietals: 50% Pinot Noir, 50% Chardonay

Farming: Organic/Biodynamic

Bright and effusive, with lovely floral top notes, the 2015 is a model of precision and grace. All the elements are so nicely balanced. The Empreinte is not the most complex wine in the range this year, but it is super delicious and full of appeal. Dosage is 4 grams per liter. Disgorged: December, 2020. Les Empreintes is the quintessential expression of Chavot terroir.

VINIFICATION: Grapes are picked up by hand when fully ripen, then traditional pressing. Natural alcoholic fermentation in barrels from Burgundy (aged of 10 years minimum). No malolactic fermentation.

AGING: 6 months of barrel ageing with regular stirring of the lees.
