Vineyards situation : Chevalier-Montrachet Les Demoiselles is located to the south of the Côte de Beaune, at the summit of the slope where the villages of Puligny-Montrachet and Chassagne-Montrachet converge, but on the Puligny commune, just above Le Montrachet. It is very small : 1.28 acre.

Characteristics : Louis Jean Baptiste Jadot bought back the vineyard in 1913 from two sisters and decided to name it "Les demoiselles". This vineyard had already belonged to his grand-father who had bought it in 1845. The subsoil is extremely chalky with a lot of stones, perfectly drained and easy to overheat with south-south-eastern exposition.

Wine making : Chevalier Montrachet "Les Demoiselles" is produced only with Chardonnay grapes, fermented and aged 15-18 months in oak barrels before bottling. This vinification highlights the unique qualities inherent in the fruit of this great vineyard.

Winemaker's comments / Gastronomy : Maison Louis Jadot produces limited quantities of this grand cru, which in many vintages equals or surpasses Le Montrachet in concentration and complexity. Its bright, golden colour and penetrating fragrance of toast and honey predict the rich, mellow fruit flavours, velvety elegance and intense finish of this wine of exceptional grace and breed. This wine best suits turbot, monkfish, scallops with white truffles, roasted lobster, grilled foie gras, braised veal, free range chicken ...

Preservation : Wine to age, it will keep for a minimum of 15-20 years and even more in good conditions of temperature and humidity, and even more in good vintages.
