From a collection of hillside vineyards averaging 20 years of age and all from the commune of Chichee. The soils are a classic mix of limestone and clay. The vines are tended with the same care and attention to detail as the lieu-dit and premier cru bottlings. The wine is vinified in the stainless steel with extended lees contact.
The 2017 Chablis was blended the week before my visit and is sampled directly from stainless steel vat. None of the parcels were touched by the frost. It has a very fragrant, quite floral bouquet with hints of fruits de mer and yellow flowers. The palate is well balanced with impressive weight for a village cru, full of tension with a sappy, almost Muscadet-like finish. Very fine. 89-91 points Neal Martin, Vinous, August 2018
