The Chardonnay comes from 30-year-old vines with south-facing exposures in the Village of Préhy. Soils are Kimmeridgian with alternate layers of limestone and marls containing fossilized marine bodies, and the vines are farmed biodynamically. After harvest, the wine is pressed and fermented using native years in stainless steel tanks. The wine is then aged in tank for 9 months and malolactic fermentation is completed at this time. Aromatically this wine is tart, with notes of lemon oils and mango skin, as well as a bit of minty herbaceousness. On the palate, there are flavors of honey, tropical fruits just barely ripened, as well as a finish of bracing acidity.
— Sainte Claire —
The Sainte Claire Chablis expresses with a great deal of finesse the typicity of its Chablis soil: the Kimmeridgian. Made from Chardonnay grapes, this vintage expresses the singularity of our wines through its strength, precision and freshness.
On the nose, notes of lemon, yellow fruits. The mouth is wrapped, balanced, and tangy. A specific wine while gluttony.
Serve between 12°C and 14°C.
