GRAPES: 100% Chardonnay.
The Louis Jadot Petit Chablis has been selected for its nice straw yellow colour. It may have a slight green colour in great vintages. It is always a straightforward wine with a very accessible minerality and never too mellow.
VINEYARDS: Chablis is in the northern part of Burgundy, half way between Dijon and Paris. The Petit Chablis area is produced in villages such as Chablis, Beine.
VINTAGE: A season of extreme summer temperatures and one of the hottest and sunniest on record which led to lower yields. However, whilst yields are low, the quality and concentration is outstanding, with wines of great character.
WINEMAKING: This wine is fermented in vats by different growers, and then aged in the Louis Jadot cellars about 8 months before bottling, usually during Spring.
