Clos Pitois is a white wine produced in Burgundy, Chassagne-Montrachet.
The Clos Pitois, is very famous since it was created by the Monks in 1421. Its wine is served in the most prestigious gastronomic meals such as Embassy meals. The global area of the Clos Pitois is about 3 hectares, half planted in Pinot Noir grapes and half in Chardonnay grapes.
The Clos Pitois’ harvest is entirely done by hand, like the picking and the sorting of the grapes, which is performed in the vineyard on a sorting table in a very rigorous way. This wine is made only from chardonnay, the average vine age is 50. The terroir is stony clay-limestone soil. Aging is done for 8 month in French oak barrels from which 30% are new oak. Producing 8000 bottles per year.
This is an excellent wine which has a complex bouquet with blossoms and citrus, with hints of toasted bread and hazelnut, on the palate it feels like a fruit basket with a citrus dominance. Lightly flavoured with vanilla, very well-balanced and a light acidity.
