AOC Petit Chablis
The vineyards of the Petit-Chablis appellation lie on either side of the River Serein. This AOC was instituted in 1944. It is one of the jewels in the crown of the Chablis district which, lying in the northernmost department of Burgundy, forms the “golden gate” to the region as a whole. A Chardonnay wine through and through, “Petit” Chablis has, in fact, nothing “little” about it .
This wine is a brilliant pale gold, the colour of rye-straw, sometimes flecked with green. Its aromas are of white flowers ( may, acacia ) mixed with citrussy notes ( lemon , grapefruit ) over a mineral base ( gun, flint ). Notes of peach and other white-fleshed fruits are sometimes encountered. The mouth is light and lively with well-balanced acidity. A spirited attack soon yields to a likeable roundess. A touch of staliness ( iodine ) is characteristic . Freshness, body and persistence come together to form a harmonious whole. The wine is drunk young, ideally after two years : its belong to the Spring .
