Made from a small 1.1 hectare site planted to clone 95 Chardonnay, this vineyard is prized for producing racy, crunchy Chardonnay at low baume levels. Planted in 2004 with a plant density of 2300 vines per hectare, this specially selected parcel of soil is on the crown of a gentle hill, with a slight aspect to the east. The block is extremely gravelly with a very high content of granite and possesses an underlying stony-clay base at a depth of around one metre.

Hand harvested fruit was whole-bunch pressed to tank then moved to French oak barriques for natural fermentation. The high natural acidity and low baumé levels inherent to Clone 95 requires the use of malolactic fermentation to help reduce acidity, building texture and complexity through the palate.

Aged for 9 months in barrel with bâtonnage conducted every four weeks, the quality of the 2021 vintage shines through and has produced a wine of superb intensity and drive. The Block 6 has the same winemaking and aging as the Block 5 but is markedly different—more racy and linear. A Puligny to the other Block 5’s Chassagne!
