This wine is made from grapes from the plots next to the ‘premier crus’. It has the same elegance and bouquet as the premier crus, but to a lesser degree. Dry and fruity, this is a clear and light wine with aromas and flavour that develop rapidly. It can easily be kept for 5 to 8 years.
Tasting notes; Colour: vivid yellow with a hint of green. Nose: still discreet with a touch of hawthorn blossom and freshness. Palate: round, fresh and mineral. It has good length and a powerful finish.
The Chablis is served chilled (10 to 12°C) with oysters, seafood, charcuterie pâtés and deli meats, pork dishes or snails. It also goes well with goats’ cheeses and gruyere cheese.
