Piuze, Patrick

From the left bank of the Serein in the commune of Beines, in a valley with full south sun exposure. Fermented and aged 75% in used barrels and 25% in tank. The wind corridor brings freshness to this wine; balanced and complex.

"The 2016 Chablis "Terroir Vallée Sebillon" comes from 22-year-old vines that cover 0.25 hectares, matured in 75% used barrels and the remainder in vat. It has more vigor on the nose than the Terroir de Decouverte, with chalk and lemon zest aromas and yellow flowers following through later. The palate is well balanced with crisp acidity. It is not a complex Chablis but focused and with a sense of tension on the flinty finish. This is worth seeking out—lively and tensile, I can see this offering four or five years of drinking pleasure and possibly more."
