Classic Petit Chablis showing a salty wet stone character through to a clean and mouthwatering finish.
In 1975, Jean-Pierre Ellevin established the current domain, which is situated in the village of Clichée, in the heart of the Chablis appellation and decided to specialise in the production of Chablis. Jean-Pierre is the fifth generation of the family to own and run the domain with expertise having been passed from father to son over the years. In the 1980’s Jean-Pierre married his wife, Brigitte Cerveau, also from a winemaking family with a history dating back to the French revolution. Today, Jean-Pierre and Brigitte cultivate 16 hectares, which is exclusively Chardonnay. Together with their son Alexandre Ellevin, who heads up the winemaking, they are passionate about respecting tradition whilst producing excellent, aromatic wines, which are a true reflection of their origin.
2015 is a very typical Chablis vintage, with well balanced citrus fruit and minerality.
The vines on this Petit Chablis parcel are aged between 15 and 25 years. The vineyards are managed using sustainable agriculture methods, reducing the use of chemicals in order to respect the land and its environment. No weedkillers are used and the vineyards and carefully farmed three times a year in order to respect the soil biodiversity.
Traditional vinification techniques were used to produce this Petit Chablis, whilst following a philosphy of minimal intervention. The grapes were vinified in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks, in order to preserve the primary flavours and characteristics of the terroir. The wine was kept on its fine lees in oder to achieve the perfect balance between fruit and a rounded texture. Unoaked in style, the wine was then rested for a period of eight months in stainless steel, prior to being bottled.
An elegant and crisp Petit Chablis with vibrant citrus fruits, enveloped in mineral complexity. The fresh and fruity characters are supported by a rounded and textured palate.
A stylish apéritif or accompanies oysters perfectly.
