An excellent Chablis from a high quality vintage. This is from the highest (coolest) vineyards in Chablis. Steely elegant Chardonnay as only the French can do.
Out of stock
Vineyard of 14 Ha (34,45 acres) located around the village of Viviers, at the East of Chablis city. It is the highest part of the whole Chablis vineyard.
Grapes: 100% Chardonnay
Soil: The soil is chalky-white fossil rich limestone of the Kimmeridgian strata. (It is thought that these soils, also found in Sancerre and parts of Champagne, as well as the aspect/sun exposure, are responsible for the best quality grapes).
Alcohol: 12.5 % VOL
Wine making: Mechanical harvest, providing slight prefermentary maceration, pneumatic press. 100% vinification in thermoregulated stainless steel vats. At each stage of vinification, they seek a juxtaposition of the characteristics inherent to Chablis: fruitiness (citrus, tropical fruit), florality and «;terroir»; (minerality). Maturation for 6 to 8 months on lees followed by bottling from March onwards.
Tasting notes: A pretty, pale bright yellow colour with slight glints of green. Very fresh nose displaying a mixture of citrus and grapes with a delicately floral touch. On the palate, it has a fine Chablis minerality but a nice roundness of chardonnay and good length.
Serving suggestions: Served very cold at 10°C this wine can make a good aperitif with gougeres or charcuterie. It can also be enjoyed with oysters or sea food. Or just enjoy!
Cellaring potential: Enjoy now or keep for 3 to 5 years.
Single bottles, multiple bottles or complete boxes (12 bottles) can be ordered.
