Vineyard Site: This is the northernmost region of Burgundy, located in a dramatic circle of hills where vines have been planted for hundreds of years
Soil: the Kimmeridgian limestone contains millions of tiny marine fossils embedded in a kind of whitish mortar which may have been once the bottom of the sea… hundreds of million years ago. This marine origin gives the wines of Chablis their unique flavor.
- Plantation density: 6 250 stocks/ha. Pruning: double Guyot “Vallée de la Marne” (for its resistance to frost).
- Yield: we aim for a lower yield in order to extract all possible nuances from the terroir.
- Supply: This wine comes from grapes harvested on some parcels of the Drouhin Family Properties as well as from grapes and musts purchased from supply partners. Very slow pressing so as to respect fruit.
- Ageing Type: stainless-steel vats. Length: 7 to 8 months.
Tasting note by Véronique Boss-Drouhin: “A dry and fruity wine, easy to drink. Its color is pale gold with greenish hues. Very fresh aromas reminiscent of citrus (lemon or grapefruit); small pleasant touches of fern or coriander are found as well. On the palate, dry and fruity, with mineral notes. Pleasant and long aftertaste”.
