Chablis Grand Cru, “Blanchot”
On a southeast slope of porous limestone soils, the grand cru of Blanchot produces a delicate, floral and forward Chablis. The wine is raised in the fashion of the domaine, which is to say, it spends an extended period of time on the lees (18-24 months) without the use of oak. It has a silky texture with elegant flavors of almond, honey and licorice and an attractive citrus and mineral finish.
