With clayey and relatively deep soil, the wines are rich and expansive. This richness giving a sensation of only moderate acidity, the wine is therefore more white Burgundy than Chablis in style. It is very good to drink young, with its notes of hawthorn, lily and peach. It is a very ample but mouth-watering wine. With time, wine tension will increase and it will take on a more saline, sea air aspect and therefore recover a more Chablis-like identity. In the vineyards balanced approach for pest control is used. Soils are maintained via regular ploughing. Pneumatic pressing. Natural enzymatic settling for 12 to 24 hours at around 15°C then fermentation with indigenous yeasts, partly in stainless steel vats, partly in barrel. Systematic malolactic fermentation followed by assemblage after 8 to 10 months. Fining if necessary, light filtration and bottling. ABV 13%
