K&L Notes

According to Allen Meadows: "Jérôme Chezeaux directs this 11.3 ha domaine, where he practices lutte raisonée (the philosophy of treating only against real rather than anticipated vine threats, such as pests, rot, mildew, etc.). He prunes short and debuds severely as the desire is to avoid a green harvest unless absolutely necessary. The goal is to produce 35 to 40 hl/ha in a normal vintage with sorting taking place in the vineyard under the notion that if one waits until the fruit arrives at the cuvérie, it's already too late because the clean fruit is contaminated by rubbing against the damaged bunches. Chezeaux employs 100% destemming, 3 to 4 days of cool maceration at 10 to 12º C and the fermentations are allowed to jump start themselves with only natural yeasts. The frequency of punch downs vary according to the character of the vintage and condition of the fruit with pump overs to oxygenate the must when necessary. The total cuvaison generally lasts 15 to 18 days followed by a lees settling if required. The wines are allowed to mature in cask for 15 to 18 months with fining or filtration only if deemed necessary. As Chezeaux puts it, 'the less you touch the wine, the better it is.' "
