Chablis AC Les Deux Rives 2016

Olivier Leflaive

The signature cuvée Chablis from Leflaive is an outstanding value true to the character of Chablis.

Terroir: Chablis Les Deux Rives is a blend of several terroirs on both sides of the Serein River including parcels in Milly, Poinchy, La Chapelle, Lignorelles, Fontenay and Beine.

Vinification The different parcels are vinified separately in 100% stainless steel. The wine is blended and bottled young to preserve freshness and acidity.

    This white borders on the rich side, with apple, yellow plum and mineral flavors. Well-balanced, lingering with a tangy aftertaste. Drink now through 2022.
