$99.99

92 rating Wine Advocate “Wine Advocate 92 points – The 2015 Chablis Grand Cru Chateau Grenouilles comes courtesy of 40-year-old vines and spent 20 months on the fine lees in stainless steel and oak barrels. It has a clean and fresh bouquet, with scents of grilled walnut and orange rind on the nose, the minerals tucked in just behind. The palate is well balanced with a fine bead of acidity, sophisticated and precise as it fans out toward the finish. This is a very finely made Chateau Grenouilles from La Chablisienne and is equal to the 2014 when it was tasted last year”

Description

Since 1923 at Chablis in Burgundy, the meticulous care of the vine-growers working together under the banner of La Chablisienne has given birth to wines whose magnificence is amplified by the passage of time. These wines, coming from a mosaic of ”climats”, or vineyard plots, provide a pallet of emotions marked with a truly mineral touch. Chablis, half way between Paris and Beaune, forms the real gateway to Burgundy ’s treasure-house of wines. The vineyards, lying on both sides of the River Serein, cover 6,800 hectares (some 17,000 acres) in 20 villages. Of the 4,700 hectares in production, La Chablisienne alone represents nearly 25% and produces every one of the Chablis appellations. The production of the whole vineyard reaches 250 000 hectolitres per annum. Chablis is therefore thefirst producer of white wine in Burgundy. The wines are made from a single grape variety, the Chardonnay which finds in the soil of Chablis the matter for its superb fineness. Our winery groups nearly 300 winegrowers to produce the great white wines of Chablis. These wines reflect the utmost care our winegrowers devote to the cultivation of their vineyards and the commitment our winemakers bring to revealing the heart and soul of the wines. It is this subtle harmony between the grower in the vineyards, the technical advisor and the winemaker which bestows on our wines their much sought-after distinction.
