Description

The Chablis Grand Cru appellation is reserved for the most prestigious terroirs covering some 100 hectares producing only 5,500 hectolitres annually. They are situated on the right banks of the river Serein in the most favorable soils, enriched by tiny fossil oysters. All grapes are hand-picked then aged for a 12 months, 80% in stainless steel tanks and 20% in oak barrels. This is the only wine produced by the estate to see any oak aging.

History
