La Chablisienne, Chablis ‘Chateau Grenouille’ Grand Cru

RM505.0

Once upon a time, there were seven Grand Crus – and one chateau. The domain of Chateau Grenouilles is an exceptional property and unique in Chablis. It is located on the hillside plot known as ‘Grenouilles’ in the heart of the Grand Crus. In 2003 La Chablisienne inherited this legend.

Grenouilles is one of the rarest Chablis Grand Crus, it forms an unbroken plot of 7.2 hectares, superbly exposed on a South-West slope and facing Chablis village. Comprising a selection of small parcels of old vines which are carefully harvested by hand, Chateau Grenouilles is a legendary white wine with one of the most glorious expressions of minerality. This great wine reveals its true potential with time thanks to its exceptional ageing quality.

Limpid and brilliant wine. The first impression in the bouquet is deliciously floral; it reveals itself slowly and endlessly. The aromatic intensity builds with aeration, while adding freshness and some mineral reduction. All the while there is natural elegance and density. Great aromatic persistence. Exceptional balance in the mouth combines aromatic freshness, minerality and fine acidity. The density is outstanding and the finish is long, yet somewhat restrained.

Description

The story of La Chablisienne begins back in 1923. Under the leadership of Abbe Balitrand, a number of winegrowers joined forces to better withstand the economic difficulties of the period. Together, in the middle of the Chablis vineyards, they created a cooperative winery to market their wines. Until the mid-1950s, the members of the cooperative delivered their production to La Chablisienne, who was then responsible for creating the blends and for selling them, mainly to wholesalers.

However, La Chablisienne wanted to go much further and create a style of its own. So it was decided that the harvest would be delivered in the form of musts (unfermented juice), a particularity that has become the trademark of the house and giving it total control over the winemaking processes. There is constant information sharing between the winegrowers and the technicians, linking the quality of the musts to the parcels that produced the grapes thus ensuring the best possible technical guidance.
La Chablisienne, in true pioneer spirit, has never ceased to meet a wide range of challenges in areas as diverse as winegrowing and winemaking, human resources and marketing. It is the meticulous work of all those involved that gives wines which constantly improve with the passage of time.
