Region: France - Burgundy

Domaine Roblet-Monnot

Pascal Roblet can trace his roots in Volnay to the 1600,s on his mother’s side and four generations on his father’s side. All of Domaine Roblet-Monnot’s holdings are in Volnay, 6 hectares. Pascal’s conversion to bio-dynamic viticulture in 1997 along with his high density planting, 12,000 vines per hectare, and very low yields, 30-35 hectoliters per hectare, are part of what has transformed his domaine into one of the leading sources of wine from these communes.

Winemaker's Notes

The 2017 Nerthus Hautes Blanc (Hautes-Côtes de Beaune Chardonnay)  was racked in September 2018 with plenty of lees.

Ooh, that’s different, deep, some vibrancy of flavor, plenty of herb, but no sulfur style here for sure. Full, but fresh, depth of texture, just a fabulous thing from the mid palate onwards
