2019 Chablis Grand Cru Les Preuses
The Grand Cru vineyard Les Preuses sits along an ancient Roman road that used to be called “voie pierreuse” (stony road). Over the centuries, “la pierreuse” became “la preuse.” The 10.8 hectare climat faces south and southwest, bathed in sunlight for most of the day and into the late evening during summer. On the surface, the soils are predominantly clay-limestone and brown in color, although some plots are covered with white, thinner clays.
Wild yeast primary and malolactic fermentation in stainless steel followed by aging in barrel for 6 months and then return to tank until bottling.
TASTING NOTES |
A dense, powerful Preuses with the weight of the vintage in the form of rich orchard fruit, tempered by a big hit of ripe integrated lemony acidity and a mass of creamy saline stony flavours, culminating in a persistent fresh finish.
