Vinification

In stainless steel tanks to respect the characteristics of the Chablis terroir and allow all its minerality to express itself. After fermentation, the 1er Crus are aged for 6 months on fine lees. The wine is then, if necessary, glued with bentonite (clay that absorbs the wine’s proteins and clarifies it naturally) and cooled to promote the precipitation of tartaric acid. Before bottling, Kieselguhr filtration to naturally clarify the wine.

 

Tasting notes

Golden colour, with a very beautiful brillance. Beautiful concentrate of fine, elegant and very expressive aromas: lime, hawthorn, mineral notes, acacia, quince. Tender and delicate on the palate, where floral, mineral and citrus notes blend with caramel and honeyed notes to offer a perfect roundness. Admirable complexity and superb persistence.
