Côte de Nuits Villages Vieilles Vignes 2018 of Domaine Charlopin Tissier comes from a single limestone-clay plot of 0.47 hectares of old vines planted in the Côte de Nuits. This is the last vineyard that Yann collects every year. Once harvested, all the grapes are completely de-stemmed, undergo a cold maceration and are fermented with natural yeasts. Yann prefers a long and slow levage on fine lees. The grapes are pressed into tanks and decanted into barriques where they rest for 16 months. Aging in barriques (30% new) for 16 months. Bottled unfiltered.
