Typicality  

Cuvée in tribute to Raymond Bachelier, father of Francine. The vines are on a hillside of Villy, giving another style of Chablis with a saline, sea-front like minerality recalling of the other layer of Chablis' geology and those tiny oyster shells called Exogyra Virgula.

Serving temperature

Our tasting  

Precise, sharp and clean nose that might seem a bit subdued but this subtlety also allows a saline side to shine. A bit of breathing opens everything up and brings on hints of ripe pear and apple. The mouth follows the same path with a more exuberant impression with a rich sunny fruitiness. The superb length goes on with a sea-front like minerality which is typical for the appellation.
