100% Chardonnay - Chablis Grand Cru - The Very Best
Classification of Chablis. (Subtly Oaked)
“Les Clos”, the biggest of the Chablis Grand Cru
vineyards, is located in it's southeast sector. Albert
Bichot is privileged to own two vineyards here, with a total
of almost 4 acres, this allows them to blend grapes with two
very different yet complementary profiles. The first vineyard
is located at mid-slope and benefits from slightly higher
temperatures than the second, which is located at the top of
the slope, protected from the north winds by the nearby forest.
The two plots once again reveal that Burgundy is the kingdom of
"Terroirs". The first plot at mid-slope generally provides
deeper, richer, fleshier wines whereas the second plot
produces wines with greater acidity and tension. It is the
blending of the two that lends our "Les Clos" all of its
complexity. Nicely Oaked for perfect Chablis roundness.
The differences between their two plots can be detected
throughout the tasting experience. The nose skilfully combines
floral notes from the higher of the two plots with almond and
hazelnut notes from the mid-slope vineyard. The palate is
full-bodied and structured with pleasing acidity that is not
overpowering. -- The well-balanced fullness of "Les Clos" is
such that it may be enjoyed with a wide range of dishes.
Classically, it can accompany seafood or fine white meats. Its
characteristics are an equally good match for slightly spicy
dishes. Serve between 11 and 13°C (52°F - 55°F).
This wine may be laid down for approximately 15 years.
