Ropiteau Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru Sous le Puits Chardonnay 2019
- Rich, full
Ropiteau Freres was established in 1848 when the first trains connected Burgundy to Paris. The Ropiteau brothers saw an opportunity and began trading as wine merchants. Shortly thereafter they developed relationships with growers, many still in place to this day (with subsequent generations of course), to start producing their own wines.
This 1er Cru is all about intensity. It’s sourced from a vineyard on the upper slope with south-eastern exposure, enjoying excellent drainage and abundant sun. After hand-harvesting and hand-sorting, the team at Ropiteau gently presses the grapes, sending the juice to 20% new French oak for 10 month on lees. There’s incredible concentration here, with vibrant minerality, citrus and white blossoms on the nose and a rich driving palate that leads to a lengthy acid-driven finish. For those who haven’t experience the true power of fine white Burgundy, this is the wine that’ll show you the light.
