Appellation: Chablis A.C., Bourgogne
Tense and Crystalline
"In this northernmost region of Burgundy, the unique climatic conditions confer all their freshness and lightness to this singular wine. This is how the name Chablis has become synonymous with "outstanding, dry white wine"… par excellence."
No other wine producing region has ever shown its relationship with geology so strongly. Formed in the style of the myriad tiny oysters (Exogyra virgule) which are intimately incorporated in the marls and chalky-marls of the vineyards, the names Chablis, Chardonnay and Kimmeridgian are inseparable. Thus Chablis draws its incomparable minerality from the soils and sub-soils in an insatiable fashion.

Winery Tasting Notes
Pale gold with green glints.
The crystalline purity nicely brings attention to the white-fleshed fruit aromas (pear, apple). Notes of slightly spicy mint and lime tree compete in terms of freshness and finesse.
With great richness, this Chablis expresses a profound minerality which upholds flavours of peach, citrus and fern. Straightforward and very long on the palate, the strongly energetic finish is mouth-watering and almost saline
Fish or poultry terrine, exotic dishes, seafood, snails, goats cheese. Serve at 10 - 11°C.
