Chablis 1er Cru Vaillons "Les Minots"

2020
France
Burgundy

‘Les Minots’ is a specific parcel within 1er Cru Vaillons with 70-year-old vines that benefit from southern exposure. It's Patrick's warmest vineyard and normally the first to be harvested. Fermented and aged in used barrels. Creamy citrus fruit with a nice minerality.

"The 2020 les Vaillons “Minots” from Domaine Piuze is simply outstanding. The bouquet is deep, pure and complex, wafting from the glass in a refined blend of lemon, pear, beeswax, chalky minerality, spring flowers, citrus peel and just a touch of vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is pure, full, precise and complex, with excellent depth at the core, fine mineral drive, bright, zesty acids and a very long, refined and compelling finish. Great juice. 2025-2060."
