"Intense and Mineral"
APPELLATION: Chablis GRAPE VARIETY: Chardonnay 100% SOIL AND SUBSOIL: Upper and Middle Kimmeridgian. Alternating limestone and marl with fossilised Exogyra virgula. PLANTING DENSITY: 5,500 to 6,500 vines /ha. AVERAGE AGE OF VINES: 35 years.
VINIFICATION: Cold settling before fermentation. Both yeast and malolactic fermentations in stainless steel tanks andbarrels. MATURING: 14 months on fine lees, in tanks and barrels.
A Pale gold in colour with silvery highlights, a limpid and brilliant wine. Slightly restrained on opening with notes of very slightly spicy white fruits. On aeration, a fine lightly-grilled mineral intensity is accompanied by a floral note. Persistent. Full-bodied, fresh and pure in the mouth with an elegant mineral definition. Great potential for the future. Long finish. A fine example of a Chablis.
