Pierre Baillette - Perine (Pierre's daugher) is Alexandre Chartogne's wife, from Chartogne-Taillet. The Domaine and vineyards have been in her family for generations and she took over everything around 2009. Her production is much smaller than her husbands, at only 600-1000 bottles per cuvée, other than the Le Village, which is about 3000 bottles. Stylistically, the wines are very similar to Alex's wines - vinous, slightly oxidative, very mineral and (at the top end) based on single vineyard expressions. Expressive & elegant but persistent mousse, lemon, fresh baked bread & wet stones.
Pairing: French fries, fried chicken, life....
Grape: 60% Chardonnay from Trois Puits, 40% Pinot Noir from Rilly la Montagne from harvest 14 & 15
Soil: Chalk of Montange de Riems
Viticulture: Since 2010 no pesticide are used on the vines. Two horses are often walking in the vineyard. Manual harvest.
