Nose: intense bouquet of mandarins and pineapple softly emphasized by notes of fresh almonds
Mouth: fresh and generous, with just the right touch of minerality and a long-lasting and saline finale.
Food and wine pairing
Chablis is located in the Yonne department between Paris and Dijon. This particular location is part of Chablis uniqueness, from its famous terroir made of oysters fossils to the harsh winegrowing conditions we experience in the region. Every vintage is a challenge but every year the special characteristics of the wines shine bright.
Vinification and maturing
Vintage : 2016
After a mild winter followed by a chilly and rainy spring, the first buds started to burst in mid-April which was in the average trend of the 10 previous years. Unfortunately, about 20% of the vineyard was damaged after a frost incident in the end of April. From there we knew that if the vines were to grow again, the new vegetation would not bear fruits. From then, the growth slowed down because of a depressing weather and the vegetative cycle started running late. A second frosting incident caused new damage in the vineyard, leading to increased gaps from plots to plots. Then, in mid-May, a hail storm hit strongly the north of Chablis followed by a second one in the south of Chablis as well as a part of Auxerrois. A still rainy weather prevented the vines to grow as expected and also generated mildew attacks. In spite of everything, the flowering occured in mid-June. In August, the extremes reversed and hot temperatures settled allowing for a decontamination of the vines. Unfortunately, it lasted a bit too much and created sunburns on the grapes. Finally, the ripening was quick and harvesting began on September, 26th. The yields are very low and also very variable because of all the weather incident. Fortunately, the wines are already full of fruit, very pleasing and well balanced.
