This wine is lively, pleasant and fruity. Lovely citrus flavours on a fine, minerally background. Alain Geoffroy’s vineyard is located on Kimmeridgian limestone with 15-20 years old vines, that has made the mineral-driven wines of Chablis so famous. Making this a very serious wine for its price and a go-to white for summer lunches, big dinner parties, fish, seafood, goats cheese, crunchy salads and filling the wine rack. Nothing little about this Petit-Chablis and without the price of a Grand Cru.

Tasting Notes from Pinto Wines
|Nose||Aromas of acacia mingled with citrus notes (lemon, grapefruit) over a mineral base (flint, typically referred to as the odor of a flintlock gun). Sometimes one can find aromas of peach and white-fleshed fruit|
|Palate||The mouth is zesty and light, with balanced acidity. This lively attack is followed by a pleasing roundedness. Its salty whiff is part of the character of the land. It has a fatness to complement its crispness, producing a lasting sensation on the palate|
|Colour||Golden yellow, pale green colour, bright, luminous and clear|
|Grape Variety||100% Chardonnay, No Oak|
|Making Techniques||Traditional in temperature controlled tanks|
