Terroirs and vinification
The relief along the Serein river, the Kimmeridgian soil and the unique grape variety used, Chardonnay, lead to this unique wine, yet copied and whose name has been used wrongly all over the planet. The soil composed of kimmeridgian-type limestone, rich in marine fossils and in particular small comma-shaped oysters (Exogyra Virgulae) brings aromas of both citrus and iodine, a marked minerality and, above all, a freshness. unique to the wines of the region. The altitude of the Petit Chablis plots brings freshness and minerality to these wines.
The vinification is done entirely in stainless steel vats and, after aging for almost 1 year, the wine is bottled not too early to allow the purest expression of the fruit and the Chablis terroir.
