Our oenologists' opinion
Its straw color with green reflections offers a fresh nose of white fruit and a mineral edge. On the palate, this wine is balanced, distinctive and nervous with freshness and a nice tension, frank.
Body ? The body is the way a wine feels inside the mouth. Several factors, such as the alcohol content and the presence of tannins, contribute to the feel of the wine.
Freshness ? The freshness of a wine is defined by its level of acidity. Unlike rounded wines, fresh wines are easy to drink, and are more lively. Acidity plays a necessary part in a wine's structure.
Aging ? All wines do not have the same aging potential. Some are supposed to be consumed at a young age while others must be kept for longer periods of time.
Do you know ?
Composed of fossils of Exora virgula, which are small oyster shaped, the Chablis subsoil gives the wines a unique character.
