This is from the Plamont, the highest flat mountain top vineyard that you can see just below the woods. There is more sandy, silty soil here before the vines reach the granite bedrock. This had a much more tightly wound coil, more minerality. This is the most delicate and finessed of the 3 Fendants. I’m an upper slope guy, what can I say? The freshy fresh 2021 should prove to be particularly dynamic and harmonious…..
The tasting note from the Chappaz website: “Yellow fruits on a background of fruit tree flowers and vine branches. Slender material, both lively and vinous, with a salty touch emerging and a full and very straight finish.”
