Beautiful yellow color with pale green reflections. The nose is alluring with a distinctive Chablis style of vine peaches, banana, citrus and a touch of brioche.

Intense ripe fruits blend with vanilla, mineral and vegetal notes and complement the wine’s soft structure.

    "Stony freshness on this wine's nose projects steeliness alongside a riper notion of juicy Mirabelle plum. The palate presents the same delicious juxtaposition. Concentration, freshness, zesty texture and ripeness all vie for attention. It's an engaging wine with a vividly fresh finish."

    "Offering up aromas of pear, fresh peach and wheat toast, the 2018 Chablis Villages (Maison) is medium-bodied, ample and satiny, with a textural attack, lively acids and chalky structuring extract. As usual, this contains some purchased fruit and is vinified and raised in stainless steel tanks."

    "The 2018 Chablis is bright, finely sculpted and nuanced, with lovely aromatic complexity and class. Lemon peel, mint and white flowers all grace this very pretty, perfumed entry-level Chablis. The richness and radiance of 2018 are evident, and yet there is a good bit of freshness as well. The Chablis is a blend of estate fruit, purchased fruit and purchased wine, vinified and aged exclusively in tank."
