In a Nutshell
If you're a fan of fine Chablis then give this a go!
Straw-yellow with a greenish hue. The wine's aromas of white fruit, stone fruit and lime zest are immediately beguiling and followed by a subtle yet persistent bouquet of green apples. The palate is well balanced with a fresh acidity and good structure. Pleasant almond notes linger on the finish.
The summer was one of the hottest and driest of the past 20 years and harvest started in the first part of September, more or less two weeks earlier than usual. The weather during picking was sunny and fairly hot for September. The grapes were ripe and healthy, providing an excellent basis for the wine.
The grapes were handpicked and upon arrival at the winery, they were gently pressed, then cool fermented in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks at 16°C. Unoaked, the wine was bottled in the spring following the harvest.
