    ORIGINS

    An appellation which takes its name from the village of Chablis and is grown in the delimited areas of 17 villages. The appellation covers 2,675 hectares, making it the most extensive "Village" appellation in Burgundy.
    Chablis is located in the Yonne department between Paris and Dijon. This particular location is part of Chablis uniqueness, from its famous terroir made of oysters fossils to the harsh winegrowing conditions we experience in the region. Every vintage is a challenge but every year the special characteristics of the wines shine bright.

    VINIFICATION AND MATURING

    The grapes and must went through a long pneumatic pressing to get a qualitative juice with no risk of oxidation. Then, it was left to settle in order to clean it up from the roughest lees and ensure pure aromas. The alcoholic fermentation took place in stainless steel tanks under controlled temperatures (18 to 20°C) to preserve a maximum of fruit and freshness from the Chardonnay. Then, the wine was aged on its lees for 8 months minimum, to develop some complexity while keeping all its freshness.
