From 75 year old vines on Kimmeridgian limestone and clay soil. Butteaux is a sub-climate of 1er Cru Montmains. A chalky soil mixed with clay gives this left bank 1er Cru richness.

"The deeper clays of this site tend to do well in warmer years, and the 2022 Chablis 1er Cru Butteaux is no exception, offering up aromas of dried white flowers, peach, citrus oil and freshly baked bread, followed by a medium to full-bodied, satiny and fleshy palate that retains good cut and tension in this warm vintage, concluding with a mouthwateringly saline finish."

"The 2022 Chablis Les Butteaux 1er Cru has a more austere bouquet that takes time to unfurl in the glass. The palate is more open and expressive, although there is still an abiding strictness as it segues into its white pepper and stem ginger-infused finish. There's plenty of persistence, but this is another Piuze wine that requires some bottle age."
