ALBERT BICHOT SAINT-VERAN CHARDONNAY 2015

Albert Bichot is one of the most important producers of Chablis, under its Domaine Long-Depaquit label. Owned by Bichot since 1968, there are 65ha (160 acres) including 10 per cent of all the Chablis Grand Cru vineyards. Here you will meet the eighth grand cru climat of Chablis-Moutonne-a monopole 2.35ha (5.8-acre) block of vines spread across grands crus Vaudesir (predominantly) and Les Preuses. The INAO sanctioned the use of the name La Moutonne Grand Cru, instead of Vaudesir, as far back as 1952, though it remains more of a brand than an official grand cru climat. Overall, the quality here is very high.

TASTING:
The nose reveals hints of smoke, followed by delicate scents of fern and acacia, moving on to aromas of ripe fruit with a hint of aniseed. The palate features pleasing roundness with citrus flavours, notes of vanilla and hazelnut, all of which are enhanced by beautiful minerality. Well balanced, structured and generous, this wine has a refreshing finish.
