Chablis Grand Cru "Les Blanchots"
AOC Grand cru
Located on the easternmost side of Chablis, “Les Blanchots” is a plot that is quite unique among the Grand Crus of Chablis. Its clay and limestone soil that contains ferrous clay along with an exceptional amount of morning sunlight give "Les Blanchots" a very distinctive and dominating floral character with remarkable finesse.
Les Blanchots is remarkably elegant. The nose is dominated by a bouquet of white flowers (Lillies, roses). The mouth is ample and generous with great harmony. The finale is very mineral with discreet hints of sea air and smoke (flint, pencil graphite).
Young, it will accompany seafood. With more age; poultry and veal in sauces, dishes based on truffles and mushrooms, local cheeses.
Serving and keeping
Serve between 11 and 13°C (52°F - 55°F).
This Grand Cru may be enjoyed in its youth or laid down for a dozen or so years to allow it to acquire hints of honey and spring meadow mushrooms.
