2018 Heitz-Lochardet Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru 'Maltroye'
SKU: B140/P1/ 1576Regular price $94.95
New to domaine bottling but far from new to viticulture in Burgundy, Heitz-Lochardet is a rising star and of our favorites here at SommCellars. Armand Heitz is the dynamic heir to his family's winery which has history back to the mid 19th century. Upon completion of oenology school, Heitz made the huge leap to begin bottling at his domaine after generations of traditionally selling fruit to top négoicants such as Drouhin. Sustainable viticulture with minimal interference is at the foundation of Heitz's approach with the results being clear in a well-rounded array of terroir-specific transparent wines.
Located roughly in the center of Chassagne-Montrachet, Premier Cru 'Maltroie' sits on brown limestone with rich clay deposits. Due to the soil, this presents as a rounder, impactful wine at Chez Heitz-Lochardet with great precision.
