Overview of the Wine
Since 1923 at Chablis in Burgundy, the meticulous care of the vine-growers working together under the banner of La Chablisienne has given birth to wines whose magnificence is amplified by the passage of time. These wines, coming from a mosaic of "climats", or vineyard plots, provide a pallet of emotions marked with a truly mineral touch.

Chablis, half way between Paris and Beaune, forms the real gateway to Burgundy ’s treasure-house of wines. The vineyards, lying on both sides of the River Serein, cover 6,800 hectares (some 17,000 acres) in 20 villages. Of the 4,700 hectares in production, La Chablisienne alone represents nearly 25% and produces every one of the Chablis appellations.

The production of the whole vineyard reaches 250 000 hectolitres per annum. Chablis is therefore thefirst producer of white wine in Burgundy. The wines are made from a single grape variety, the Chardonnay which finds in the soil of Chablis the matter for its superb fineness.

Our winery groups nearly 300 winegrowers to produce the great white wines of Chablis. These wines reflect the utmost care our winegrowers devote to the cultivation of their vineyards and the commitment our winemakers bring to revealing the heart and soul of the wines. It is this subtle harmony between the grower in the vineyards, the technical advisor and the winemaker which bestows on our wines their much sought-after distinction.

Winemaker's Tasting Notes
Pale-gold in color with silvery highlights, a limpid and brilliant wine. On opening we are presented with white orchard fruits and subtle vanilla. On aeration a beautiful mineral intensity, delicately accompanied by white fruits expresses itself. Fine persistence. Full, dense, and fresh in the mouth with fine mineral tension. Gently spiced with long, mineral and fruit finish.

93 Points - Wine Enthusiast
Bracing aromas of lime and grapefruit pith gain ripeness and roundness on the palate of this wine, gearing towards sunnier tones of Meyer lemon and tart tangerine. Crystalline to the core, this full-bodied but mineral Chablis should drink at peak through 2030.
