Chablis is surely the ultimate comfort zone of the Chardonnay. That's because he thrives here in a perfect terroir with a perfectly suitable microclimate and a soil full of lime.
The grapes come from our own vineyards and undergo a careful selection. The grapes are picked by hand, after which a 12-month ripening on the lie.
The color is light golden yellow with green sparkles. The smell is intense and refined. Aromas of tropical fruit, apple, white peach, slightly notey and notes of elegant citrus. The taste is excellently fresh and nicely balanced with lots of fruit, but also mineral and citrus hints. Excellent with fish dishes, seafood and oysters!
