Winery Notes:
Chablis is located in the northern part of Burgundy, halfway between Dijon and Paris. The continental climate brings very cold temperatures in winter followed by spring frosts and hot summers. These conditions and the marly limestone soils combine to mold the unique character of Chablis wines. The grapes are handpicked and sorted, then gently pressed and fermented without artificial temperature control. Partial or no malolactic fermentation is permitted based on the vintage, and the wine is aged in French oak. The goal is always to retain the wine’s complexity and structure.

The wine is pristine, bright and fresh with high acidity and citrus and mineral aromas and flavors.

Delicious with poultry, shellfish and lobster.
