About This Wine:

Lime blossoms and Granny Smith apples pop out of the glass of this Petit Chablis. It is clean, racy and chock-full of briny minerals.

Fermentation: Fermented and aged in stainless steel
Aging: The wine is aged on the lees for 5-10 months, depending on the vintage
Vine Age: 28 years average
Soil: Clay, Limestone (Portlandian)

The region is best-known for the Kimmeridgian soils, a highly-prized terroir of limestone and clay infused with tiny, fossilized oysters. The intense chalk and sea-shell minerality lends deep complexity to whites, making this region an ideal home for the Chardonnay grape. The Portlandian soils in the extension of the Chablis appellation, known as Petit Chablis, may not enjoy the same reputation as the Kimmeridgian, however they imbue the wines with a crisp, lively freshness and zesty, citrus aromas that speak to the deep mineral component of northern Burgundy. There is no accounting for these imaginary boundaries, because the pedigree of his wines is palpable. As Roland once told Kermit, “I don’t know why the INAO named some vines ‘Chablis’ and others ‘Petit.’ When I stand in the middle of my vineyard, the row to my left is Chablis, to the right it is Petit Chablis, but you can’t see any difference.” His wines display show-stopping nerve, to be enjoyed as easily before dinner as they are with a piece of grilled fish or oysters-on-the-half-shell. These wines drink as honestly as the man who makes them; they are staff favorites year after year.

Ratings & Reviews

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (2015 Vintage):
"The 2015 Petit Chablis, which spent a reduced period of four months on the lees, has an impressive chalky bouquet with pleasing flint/smoke notes emerging with time in the glass. The palate is fresh on the entry with citrus lemon, a touch of hazelnut and a nice bitter lemon note on the finish. Enjoy this over the next 3-4 years." - Neal Martin (30th Aug 2016)
