Our tasting  

Limpid and crystal clear the Chablis Sélection Vieilles Vignes or Selection of Old Vines suggests a subtle floral frist nose with hints of honeysuckle. A few seconds of aeration confirm this elegance that's fully blooming on white peach and abricots aromas. A true Chablis like minerality appears in the mouth and wraps itself in the complexity implied by the work Old Vines put into producing grapes. The finale lingers recalling small Chardonnay grapes that favour an aromatic concentration rather than yield. A discrete oaky touch define and rounds the tension that is usually found in Chablis.

Our culinary advice  

It is perfect with poultry and creamy cheeses.
