It may not have the same gravitas as Chablis but Petit Chablis is ideal for ready to drink wines and value for money. This is no exception as it’s a delightfully light and clean.
Petit Chablis, Burgundy, France.
The Durup family, wine growers for generations, have cultivated the vineyards of Chablis for centuries. Jean Durup reassembled the vineyards of the Château de Maligny, an estate managed during the last century by Paul Gally his great grandfather. The overwhelming percentage of ideally exposed hillsides, flinty soil and steep slopes, guarantees wines of exceptionnal quality.
The grapes are harvested from a little over twenty hectares and the vines have an average age of 25 to 30 years.
After settling, fermentation is carried out under temperature control in fiberglass or stainless steel vats to preserve the wine’s natural character. No oak is used.
Pale-straw colored with greenish glints, lean and racy, with delicate flavors of lemon, apple, pineapple and flint.
Perfect aperitif or with seafood.
