Chablis 2008

Grape Variety : Chardonnay

Soil : Limestone

Site : Plot-based selection on hills ideally located south of the village of Chablis.

The Vintage 2008 : After a very warm spring, the weather at the start of summer was quite demanding. It became fine again from the end of August with much sun and a north wind, which aided concentration of flavours. The harvest commenced in mid-September in perfect conditions under an Indian summer. Careful selection of grapes in the vineyard and winery have produced very pure white wines, well-balanced with fantastic acidity.

Tasting : Pale gold colour. Aromas of citrus fruit and green apple. Firm pure. Zesty attack to a linear and neatly edged palate. Silky mineral finish, straight and of good length.

Food pairing : Pâté, lobsters and poultry as well as some goat cheeses.
