The Chablis region is a limestone plateau cut by valleys. The Premier Crus lie on a stratum dating from the Kimmeridgian (155 millions years BC) with alternating marl and limestone and tiny deposits of oysters in the rock, reminiscent of the warm and shallow sea which then covered Burgundy.
Chartron et Trebuchet Chablis 1er Cru is a blend of 2 premiers crus vineyards: Montmains and Beauroy. As the quantities were too small to bottle each on its own, the winemaking team decided to make only one cuvée, that could bear the name of either premier cru where the grapes were coming from.
It has subtle lemony and floral notes that open out onto more mineral nuances. The attack is frank and precise, with a remarkable finish. Aromas of chalk, jasmine and lemon confit embellish the mouth.
