We have chosen to discover and share two domains this month that are real shots with a heart, precise, rigorous and rational in the vineyard and in their winemaking.
Renowned for the quality of its grapes, the house Michel Genet has stood in the village of Chouilly for several generations. It is known as a Grand Cru certified place. Today it is Agnes, Vincent and Antoine who run the company of their ancestors, a family bound by a shared passion for wine and grapes. The domain has 9 hectares of which 7 Grand Cru with mainly Chardonnay. They work with a healthy, sustainable viticulture, manual labor is favored with the motto "respect, authenticity, quality and tradition."
For the tasting, we chose the Brut Spirit. Crisp and precise, it is a nice Chardonnay with hints of peach and aromas of white flowers. The assembly Rosé with aromas of red fruits candied cherry, the palate is creamy with great finesse.
Prestige 2007 vintage is an amazing vintage. Their tête de cuvée comes from a blend of the best plots of Chardonnay. A wine that is at its peak, the notes of candied fruit and lemon play well with aromas of hazelnut, underbrush and incredible length.
