The “Les Lys” Premier Cru vineyard is located on the left bank of the Serein River, overlooking the villages of Chablis and Milly. The plot lies at the heart of the Chablis appellation with vines planted halfway up the slope. One factor that contributes to this wine’s expressiveness is its unusual exposure: east/northeast. The proportion of clay in the soil is higher than usual in Chablis, which overlies Kimmeridgian sub-stratum, which exists throughout the Chablis region. This area is cool and the grapes ripen slowly and progressively in the afternoon shade. Exposure and terroir guarantee the minerality, finesse and elegance of this Premier Cru.
Colour: pale yellow color with greenish tint.
Nose: distinct notes of white flowers ("Lys" is French for lily) and citrus fruit.
Palate: elegant and finely chiselled with a discreet marine note that is typical of the Chablis appellation. Beautiful, long-lasting finish with a fleeting tinge of acidity.
Food pairing: as an aperitif, pair it with seafood or fish in order to appreciate its richness, or with white meats, poultry in sauce and full-flavoured cheeses.
Serving temperature: 11-13°C.
