This 13 acre stony vineyard is planted solely with Chardonnay. With 55% aged in oak to add some creaminess this is a delicious fresh but complex mouthful.
Back in 1933 Georges Faiveley a well known grower in Nuits St Georges took a thirty year lease on land in the Côtes Challonnais from a Lyons Silk merchant, his son Guy purchased it outright in 1963. The 14.5 acre Monopole (100% owned by the family) of Clos Rochette was amongst that parcel. the vineyard has compact rocky (thus the name) clay and limestone soils with some vines dating back to the 1960's; 55% is aged in oak barrel 25% new the remainder in stainless steel tanks for 16 month to combine the mineral freshness adn the nicely balanced oak flavours. This is drinking beautifully now.
