Chablis

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.

TASTING NOTE

This lively wine shines with citrus notes and delivers fruity flavor with a touch of minerality.

FOOD PAIRING

Poultry, shellfish or cheese.

ABOUT THE GRAPE

Though it has a distinctive profile, Chardonnay reflects other factors such as soil composition and vinification technique. Chardonnay is a reliable, hardy and prolific vine whose only real vulnerabilities are frost and uneven development of fruit.
