An excellent Chablis Premier Cru from a good vintage. This is from the highest (coolest) vineyards in Chablis. Steely elegant Chardonnay as only the French can do.
Out of stock
This plot of Vaillons has a surface of 0,55 Ha (1,35 acres) and is situated on the left bank of the Serein River, on the territory of Chablis town. This plot is a Monopole, meaning there is one owner for this plot.
Grapes: 100% Chardonnay
Soil: Clay-rich limestone soil on the Kimmeridgian strata of the upper Jurassic. The vines are on mild slopes (10 to 15%) exposed South-East. (It is thought that these soils, also found in Sancerre and parts of Champagne, as well as aspect/sun exposure, are responsible for the best quality grapes).
Alcohol: 12.5 % VOL
Wine making: Manual harvest, pneumatic press, then vinification 100% in thermo-regulated stainless steel vats. 10 months on lees followed by bottling.
Our Tasting notes: Very pretty green-gold colour. The nose is very lively with white stone fruit notes and lemon, honey and herbal aromas. Minerally in mouth, energetic and well balanced.
Serving suggestions: Serve at 12°C. Ideal partners for sea food and white meats (the producer says match with escargots! If you like!)
Cellaring potential: Enjoy now or keep for 5 to 7 years.
Single bottles, multiple bottles or complete boxes (6 bottles) can be ordered.
