Piuze, Patrick

From a single vineyard on a north-facing vineyard, near 1er Cru Forêts. It’s fresh and rich on the palate with an herbal finish. Aged 50% in tanks and 50% in neutral barrels.

"The 2016 Chablis Terroir de Chablis usually comes from the north-facing hill in the lieu-dit of Forêts, which in this vintage produced just eight hectoliters per hectare. Therefore, it was supplemented with another parcel from the lieu-dit of Boucheron. It has a light flinty bouquet that is crisp, focused and quite minimalist in style. The palate is clean and fresh with sour lemon and orange zest, though it pulls up just a tad short on the finish. That said, I appreciate the energy conveyed by this Chablis."
