Soils

Chalky clay, marl, and marly limestone from the Kimmeridgian era (the upper Jurassic geological period, 160-140 million years ago).

Winemaking

5% of the wine is aged in neutral French oak followed by 8-10 months in bottle

Tasting Notes

Very fresh bouquet with notes of citrus and white fleshed fruit, with a very slightly oaky finish. Fresh and supple, the wine is marked by mineral notes that are typical of the appellation.

Points of Distinction

 

  • Great introduction into Chablis
  • Sourced from approximately 50-70% estate fruit
  • Chablis' chalky soil is reflected in the wine's steely minerality
