Additional Information

Beautiful yellow color with pale green reflections. The nose is alluring with a distinctive Chablis style of vine peaches, banana, citrus and a touch of brioche. The palate is well-balanced between richness, freshness and elegance. The rich and supple texture lingers on the end palate. Intense ripe fruits blend with vanilla, mineral and vegetal notes and complement the wine’s soft structure.

    A tangy version, offering lemon, apple and earth flavors, with a chalky feel as this plays out on the moderately long finish. Drink now.

    (done entirely in cuve): Medium yellow. Apricot, yellow peach and a touch of banana on the nose. Fat, spicy and lightly saline, conveying musky lime oil and ginger flavors. Less reduced than the Petit Chablis, which needs a racking. Good material here, if a bit lower in acidity than the Petit Chablis at 4.3 grams per liter. Finishes nicely dusty and dry.
