Soils

Chalky clay, marl, and marly limestone from the Kimmeridgian era. Rich in minerals and oyster fossils, giving the mineral character typical of the wines of Chablis.

Winemaking

Manual harvest in small cases to avoid compressing the grapes and bursting the berries. Aged for 14 months in neutral French oak barrels for 50% of harvest, and the remainder in stainless steel vats.

Tasting Notes

A structured, lively and mineral wine with good length on the palate. Both straightforward and fresh, with exemplary concentration.

Points of Distinction
