Chablis Villes Vignes 2016, Domaine George

The Estate’s Petit Chablis is made from a plot with Portlandian soil of aged limestone that lies in the shadow of the great Montmain vineyard. The Chablis, Vieilles Vignes and Montmains ‘Butteaux’ wines are grown in Kimmeridgian soils comprised of limestone, clay and marine fossils (from the area’s history as a sea floor). 
VARIETAL: 100% Chardonnay
VINEYARD: 50 year old vines; in Courgis, considered one of the most mineral areas of Chablis, with Kimmeridgian soil (Jurassic period)
WINEMAKING: Traditional fermentation with native yeast in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks
AGING: 12-18 months in stainless steel
TASTING NOTES: Pale yellow color with green reflections. Clear and pure nose that develops as the wine ages. The mouth is well balanced with the typical minerality of Chablis well represented.

Chateau du Hureau, Saumur Champigny, Tuffe.2015

 

Cherries, iodine and mulch. Medium-bodied and dry with an incredible balance between ripe fruit and dusty earth. This taster enjoyed the wine with a classic carbonara. W.M.

Domaine Arlot 2014, la gerbotteThis is a rare expression of Chardonnay from NSG ( Nuit Saint George ) Village, offering underripe orchard fruit and green apple, bracing minerality and chalkiness on the way to a crisp, salty finish.
