This is the fifth most highly rated Chablis Butteaux wine (based on critic scores).

Critic tasting note: (2007 vintage) "Pale yellow with greenish tints. Expressive nose with a crisp, lemony character. Medium power on the palate, supported by invigorating acidity. More of the acidulous character and a mineral finish. A potential partner for shellfish." - 87/100, Gilbert & Gaillard

Vineyard Notes
With its exceptional location in the heart of Butteaux, the western part of Montmains, this plot is now more than 60 years old. Its soils sometimes prove difficult to work with, so vine vigour is slow, particularly in the spring. Yields are gradually decreasing and so this old vine deserves separate vinification and ageing, worthy of a Grand Cru.

Winemaking
No added yeast, long fermentation using indigenous yeasts, in temperature-controlled vats. Spontaneous malolactic fermentation. The wine is gently filtered once before bottling.

Ageing
Matured for 12 to 16 months. In stainless steel tanks, with the least possible handling. Long moderately cold stabilisation. Fining using bentonite if necessary.

Producer Tasting Notes
It opens with notes of condensed milk, acacia flowers and liquorice. On the palate, maritime saline flavours precede a warm finish, with jam and peach, baked apples, and tarte Tatin.
