    What come to mind immediately are raw or marinated fish dishes to counterbalance this wine’s minerality. Towards the end of the meal, try matching this wine with dry goat’s cheese or aged Parmesan, which pleasantly complement the natural richness of this wine.

The “Les Lys” Premier Cru vineyard is located on the left bank of the Serein River, overlooking the villages of Chablis and Milly. Our plot lies at the heart of the Chablis appellation with vines planted halfway up the slope. One factor that contributes to this wine’s expressiveness is its unusual exposure: east/northeast. The proportion of clay in the soil is higher than usual in Chablis, which overlies Kimmeridgian sub-stratum, which exists throughout the Chablis region. This area is cool and the grapes ripen slowly and progressively in the afternoon shade. Exposure and terroir guarantee the minerality, finesse and elegance of this Premier Cru.

Fermentation takes place 100% in stainless steel vats.

Aged in stainless steel vats on fine lees for 12 months.
