Chablis 1er cru vaucoupin

 

CHABLIS PREMIER CRU VAUCOUPIN

 This vintage of cold maturation, which implies neither heat excess nor heaviness, has developed elegant, aromatic, well-balanced and generously mineral wines. All the elements required for a complete and perfect ripening of the Chardonnay grapes. The conditions of the grapes, which were less abundant due to coulure and millerandage were good !
