“The 2020 Mâcon-Pierreclos Tris de Chavigne is a step up still in intensity and energy, mingling aromas of crisp Anjou pear and green apple with hints of orange oil, iodine, white flowers and freshly baked bread. Medium to full-bodied, satiny and textural, it’s layered and concentrated, with a tightly wound core, racy acids and a long, chalky finish.” 92-94+ points, William Kelley, The Wine Advocate
Tri de Chavigne is the result of several successive sortings in the vines at the top of the Chavigne parcel—simply called Les Vieilles—which is home to the vineyard’s oldest vines which reach up to 80 years. Here again, only the first juices were retained, the purest and most intense in their aroma, also the freshest and most tonic. Aging took place entirely in barrels, with a relatively low proportion (24%) of new wood.
