works with 0.3 hectares of Chardonnay in the Les Méchalots climat at the
bottom of the slope. Pataille established this vineyard in 2010 using high-density,
mass-selection plantings, and the vines also include a little Pinot Beurot,
which Pataille likes for the complexity it brings to the blend. The deep
alluvial soils here (with many small stones) bring texture to offset the
tension. Fermentation starts in stainless steel, and the wine is transferred
into seven-year-old barrels halfway through to finish its aging. The wine has
not been reviewed, but this terroir routinely delivers village-level intensity,
complexity and length.
