Domaine Philippe Colin Chassagne Montrachet Les Vergers 2012
The Les Vergers vineyard is situated at the edge of Chassagne-Montrachet, bordering the vineyards of Saint-Aubin. It is positioned directly below the premier cru site of Les Chaumées and just above premier cru Les Chenevottes. The sloping, stony vineyards have a northeast exposition. Shallow soils of calcareous clay impart an elegance to the wines grown here. The age of the vines ranges from 10-65 years old. The vineyards are trained in the Single Guyot method and farmed sustainably, following la lutte raisonnée (the practice of using less chemicals, less often, less aggressively than conventional growers), with rigorous plowing and minimal use of chemical sprays.
