Petit Chablis

Mineral and fruity, Petit Chablis is a wine of pleasure, served on any occasion.

The nose is aromatic, structured and offers intensity. It reveals notes of crunchy vine peach and small notes of apple associated with hints of yellow fruits. The palate is fruity, fresh, well-balanced, well-built and offers a beautiful fat, a good structure, a beautiful acid frame, a beautiful freshness, a good definition as well as straightness. In the mouth this wine expresses notes of fresh peach, crushed brugnon and crushed pear associated with small notes of fresh/crushed mirabelle as well as a subtle hint of quince, butter as well as an imperceptible toasted hint. Good length. A beautiful wine full of finesse.
