Since 1620 this winery has been passed from father to son without stopping. Benoît is the 14th generation, working with his father Jean-Paul on their 26 ha. This was fermented wild, aged on fine lees without battonage, and spent 8 to 10 months in tank on the lees, without battonage. Youthful and juicy, tight still, with white asparagus, lemon peel, pear-skin grip, Asian pear crunch and river-stone minerality imbued with a herbal-lined leesiness giving mid-palate weight. As with all their wines, beautiful fluidity, even now in the tightness of youth. A Chablis that you can enjoy now or in a couple of years' time (rare).
