Minerally, Nutty, Medium/Full Body White.
Region: France> Burgundy> Chablis.
Notes: Organic. Vines over 45 years old (Vieille Vigne= Old Vines).
Bright, Citrusy acidity counter-balances the delicate bouquet of round, ripe fruit with stony minerality and complex nuttiness that’s derived from extensive lees contact. The grape grows organically in a vineyard of 1 hectare is over 45 years of age and extremely well exposed to the sun. The winemaking of this vintage highlights the full character of the terroir. 25% of this wine is fermented and aged in oak barrels with regular "batonnage" over 10 months. The remaining 75% is fermented and aged in stainless steel tanks on fine lees over the same time period. A rich, full-bodied wine that can be kept for 3 to 4 years before drinking.
Food pairing: Shell Fish, Seafood, Chicken, Lemon Butter Sauce.
