Courtault-Michelet Chablis Premier Cru Beauroy
Domaine Courtault-Michelet
France - Burgundy - Chablis Premier Cru

The grapes for this wine come from parcels located near the village of Beine, facing the lake.
Pale gold in color, powerful and fruity aromas ending on a vanilla note. The palate is round and expressive with fine minerality and a good balance. Ripe fruits and fresh almond flavors lead to toasted bread notes on the finish.
