Chablis Grand Cru "Les Preuses"
AOC Grand cru
This vineyard’s name probably comes from the word "perreuse" (= "pierre" or stone), the name of the ancient Roman stone road that ran from Chablis to Maligny through the current site of the “Les Preuses” vineyard. Our 0.25 ha (0.25 acre) of “Les Preuses” vines was replanted a few years ago. Vine density was increased to 8,500 vines/ha, in order to produce smaller, more concentrated grapes. The vines are single Guyot pruned. Our plot is immediately adjacent to “La Moutonne”.
The nose offers notes of flowers, fresh foliage and gunflint. Soft, long, delicate and pure tasting without any heaviness on the palate, this wine also offers floral nuances with notes of hazelnut and dried fruit on the finish.
This Grand Cru is a perfect match for seafood and white-fleshed fish. It may also be served with fine white meats and full-flavoured cheeses.
Serving and keeping
Serve between 11 and 13°C (52°F - 55°F).
Enjoy this wine when young or lay down for a dozen-or-so years to allow it to develop its tertiary aromatic characteristics (hints of forest undergrowth and mushrooms) and to heighten its minerality.
