Chablis "La Grande Vallée"

2020
France
Burgundy

From the Les Pargues vineyard in the valley between the 1er Cru Montmains hill and 1er Cru Vaillons hill; this is considered a top site by the monks. Piuze treats this wine like his 1er or Grand Cru sites and vinifies and ages this wine in neutral oak.

"I love the La Grande Vallée bottling in 2020, which is probably true of every single vintage since Patrick first began producing this cuvée in the 2014 vintage! The 2020 version is beautifully pure, precise and defined by its minerality, wafting from the glass in a blend of apple, pear, lime, fruit blossoms, a very complex base of chalky minerality and a topnote of orange peel. On the palate the wine is pure, full-bodied, focused and racy, with an excellent core of fruit, fine soil signature, crisp acids and a long, focused and perfectly balanced finish. Just a superb villages. 2024-2040+."
