The Details

In a Nutshell

Old vine Chablis, fresh, concentrated and complex.

Tasting Notes

Low-yielding old vines now approaching a minimum of 50 years reveal themselves in a concentrated rich style with wonderful aromas of delicate flint and baked apple. The age of the vines also influence the palate which has added complexity, richness and depth of flavour. This style of Chablis is far more textured and full flavoured. A wonderfully fresh wine with a silky smooth, long and dry mineral finish.

Production Notes

Low yielding vines grow on north facing kimmeridgian and chalky clay soils surrounding the village of Beine. From here Bernard selects parcels from vines approaching a minimum age of 50 years for his Chabils Vieilles Vignes. Grapes are hand-harvested.

Short cold maceration and gentle pneumatic pressing the wine is racked and fermented in stainless steel for 15 days at 21ºC. 15% is fermented in large(600l) oak barrels for 15 days and remains in oak for 8-12 months. The malolactic fermentation last up to 5 weeks.
