3 to 10 years
Selected on vines aged over 40 years and matured in recent recent Burgundian barrels (1-5 years). Slightly woody, it combines size and roundness in the mouth.
From the first nose the minerality already shines, this almost earthy minerality is drenched into an amazing fruit. A bit of breathing has those fruity notes evolve to a more precise stone fruit impression. The mouth brings another level of precision making you think about apricots and peaches. A slightly toasty hint gives depth to the tasting and prolonges it between richness and a fine tension for a charming Old Vines Chablis. A truly earthy minerality, a generous and rich fruit and subtly toasty notes, everything an Old Vines Chablis that can shine through time and tastings should have.
