Marchandes Grand Cru
Magnificent plot of land located in the heights of Féchy with twenty fruit trees planted in the middle of the vines. Trees that bring biodiversity, freshness and good mood.
Marchandes is aged for 10 months on the lees in tuns. It is unfiltered.
Body and density harmonise with elegance and freshness.
Harvest on 27th September 2021
We escaped the frost episodes in April, but the heavy rains in June and July brought an important pressure of mildew, making 2021 a particularly difficult year.
After a favorable end of season for berry ripening, we started the harvest on September 27th with Pinot noir at 95°Oe, then Chasselas around 77°Oe.
Even if the volumes are slightly below average, 2021 promises to be a very good vintage: structured (low harvest), fruity (fresh year), crystalline (good noble acidity). As if the vines had struggled to give the best of themselves.
