Appellation: Appellation Chablis Controlée.
By mid-September, the weather in Burgundy turned extraordinary and allowed harvesting to take place under ideal conditions. The quality level is high - and in Chablis even exceptional. We are quite confident to say that 2008 is one of the greatest vintage of the past 25 years. All the wines from Chablis show concentration, richness, freshness, minerality and intense aromas.

Winery Tasting Notes
Pale gold with greenish hues.
Very fresh aromas reminiscent of citrus (lemon or grapefruit); small pleasant touches of fern or coriander are found as well.
On the palate, this wine is dry and fruity, with mineral notes. Pleasant and long aftertaste. Easy to drink.
Excellent served as an apertif or with seafood, such as oysters, sea shells (of course!) and fish.
Although very pleasant and seductive when young, we recommend drinking the Chablis within to 4 or 5 years.
This is the northernmost region of Burgundy, located in a dramatic circle of hills where vines have been planted for hundreds of years. The Kimmeridgian limestone contains millions of tiny marine fossils embedded in a kind of whitish mortar which may have been once the bottom of the sea...hundreds of million years ago. This marine origin gives the wines of Chablis their unique flavour.
