Chassagne-Montrachet Rouge, Sarnin-Berrux 2012

Unlike other negoce, Sarnin and Berrux collaborate with the grower, who they make sure farms organically. They purchase the grapes while still on the vines, and they harvest the fruit themselves, not the grower. They harvest manually in small trays to handle the fruit gently. In 2012, Sarnin and Berrux waited late until the fruit was fully ripened. As always they vinify naturally in old barrels, fermenting with indigenous yeasts and without applying additives. They never chaptalize or make any adjustments and only bottle unfined and ufiltered. Only a small dose of sulfites are added at the very end before bottling, unfined and unfiltered, to help conserve the wines for travel. They apply biodynamic methods, following the lunar calendar, in all key aspects of the winemaking. This is a stupendous Chassagne red. Rich and bold dark fruit flavors, with wild, gamey spice and earth. A precise expression of Chassagne from a great vintage. All delicious, and very much a product of nature. Very reasonably priced considering the fine quality and the rigorous artisanal effort in producing it.
