La Chablisienne, Chablis ‘La Pierrelee’
A beautiful, Classic Chablis: light, crisp, mineral and without oak, with a nicely developed bouquet with lingering aromas of flower and citrus. Opens with lightly spiced, white orchard fruits with a fresh mineral touch. On aeration, a subtle, mineral note appears. Good persistence. Fresh and full in the mouth with a delicate mineral tension. Long mineral finish. A superb Chablis with great character.

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.
