Grenouille is the smallest of the seven Chablis Grand Cru. La Chablisienne owns a big part of it – 7,2 hectares out of 9,2 in total. It is a beautiful wine with an incredible length and a creamy structure. But the acidity is there and the freshness and the purity. “One of the best wines we have ever made”, says Hervé.
Average age of vines in Grenouilles is 40 years. The wine is made of 100% Chardonnay. It has been matured for 20 months on fine lees, in tanks and barrels.

Tasting Note: Soft but not invisible wood sets off a ripe mix of mineral reduction, white and yellow orchard fruit, seaweed and tidal pool nuances. There is exceptionally good richness to the generously proportioned and impressively well-concentrated flavors that coat the palate on the imposingly scaled finish where the wood telegraphed by the nose resurfaces. Note that this will need time to develop but it should be terrific in time.
