A complex nose with initial white flower notes followed by fruitier mineral notes which are discernible but not overt. Well-structured on the palate, with good volume, incorporating a fine sustained tart edge. The overall effect is elegant and crisp.
The Chablis vineyard is located between the Grands Crus and Montée de Tonnerre, consisting of a small parcel of six acres of 40 year old vines on Kimmeridgian and Portlandian clay and limestone soils with vine density of 6,500 vines per hectare.
Hand-harvested with cold static settling. Vinified in thermoregulated stainless steel vats with neutral selected yeasts followed by spontaneous malolactic fermentation. 8 months in vats on the lees which are stirred for enhanced soft fullness and complexity. Fined and filtered prior to bottling.
Can be enjoyed with oysters, white meat, charcuterie, or cheeses such as Chaource and Langres.
This vintage drinks beautifully now. Serve at 50-52°F.
