Domaine Vincey La Premiere 2015
100% Chardonnay. 3g/ltr. The second release of their superlative debut wine and still just as good. 50% fermented in 228L wooden barrels and 50% steel tanks, with no malolactic fermentation. There is an intense mineral nose with a floral element. The palate displays ripe peach, apple and citrus aromas and, as with their previous release, the oak does a fantastic job at bringing this playful fruit forward without being overpowering, creating a layered and complex experience.
The Vincey family have been winemakers for 8 generations but it wasn't until Quentin joined in 2009 that production took the form that it is today. They work with 7 hectares in Oger, Mesnil and Chouilly and, since Quentin's joining have removed any pesticides or herbicides. The modern production of wines see 12 months of oak vinification and only vintage wines made. They have been working with the biodynamic principles for over three years. An exquisite winemaker who creates a wonderful fullness of fruit and layered complexity in their wines. Truly one to investigate as their wines will soon become the stuff of legend...
