Grand Cru appellation of the Chablis wine-growing district (dept. of Yonne). The appellation may be followed by the name of one of the following 7 « climats » (named plots) :Blanchot, Bougros, Les Clos, Grenouilles, Preuses, Valmur,
Vaudésir. Producing communes : Chablis plus the hamlets of Fyé and Poinchy.
Pure green-gold in colour, evolving to a light yellow with age. The Chablis Grand Cru is a wine with fine keeping properties (10-15 years, sometimes more). Intense mineral scents (flint) but with room for lime-flowers, dried fruits,
almond and a discreet touch of honey. Field mushroom gives a strongly characteristic touch to this wine. On the palate, acidity and fat are in perfect balance, as are liveliness and dryness. It has all the charm of an inimitable and authentic wine.
