A wonderfully classic Chablis estate... An elegant Chablis that combines fleshiness and acidity wonderfully and is relentlessly fresh. The terroir is fully expressed in this Chablis with invigorating marine notes, such as oyster shell but also lemon and a fine nutty touch. It is mouth-filling, strong and very salivating!
