Chablis "Terroir de Fleys"

2020
France
Burgundy

From a vineyard near the eponymous village on the right bank of the Serein and very near to the 1er Cru Mont de Milieu. Normally the village level wines are fermented and aged in tank, this vineyard has such great quality, that Piuze treated it like his 1er and Grand Cru vineyards, fermenting and aging the wine entirely in neutral barrels for ten months.

"Patrick calls this his “baby Mont de Milieu” and the wine has turned out beautifully in 2020. These vines were planted back in 1982 and now are fully into their prime. The wine delivers a fine aromatic constellation of tart orange, pear, wet stone minerality, a touch of straw and a topnote of orange zest. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, complex and nicely reserved in profile today, with a fine core, excellent mineral drive and grip, zesty acids and a long, promising finish. 2024-2040."
