Chablis 1er Cru Vaillons "Les Minots"

2022
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.

"Aromas of pear, honeycomb and dried white flowers introduce Piuze's 2022 Chablis 1er Cru Vaillons Les Minots, a medium to full-bodied, fleshy and charming wine that's seamless and enveloping, offering considerable early appeal. "

"The 2022 Chablis Vaillons 1er Cru Les Minots has a lovely bouquet with orange blossom, Golden Delicious and light saffron aromas. The palate is well-balanced with a slightly honeyed opening, a little more exotic in style, yet it retains the essence of Chablis. There’s a very slight reduction that plays to its advantage on the finish. Highly recommended."
