Alexandre Jouveaux
Le Mont 2019

Chardonnay
Burgundy, France

Alexandre Jouveaux, a former Parisian fashion photographer, works only a couple of hectares near Uchizy, a small commune in the Mâcon. Jouveaux prefers to farm isolated parcels surrounded by dense forests, and the results of his farming and minimalist cellar work have been nothing but astounding to our palates over the past couple of years. Le Mont is a haunting expression of Chardonnay from a seventh of a hectare plot with 60 year old vines planted on limestone—depthy and gourmand, with a striking acidity that will reward one’s patience after some time in the cellar—truly one of the deep gems of Burgundy.
