L&C Poitout, Stellaris, Vaucoupin Chablis, 1er Cru, 2016, 750 ml
Gorgeously expressive, with white flowers, pears, yellow apples, bright chalky citrus, pith, cheesy and leesy notes, carried along on a medium body that is crisp yet mouthfilling at the same time. The finish is long, and almost saline in its minerality. Read more
VARIETY: 100% Chardonnay
AGE OF VINES:
WINEMAKING: Louis and Catherine Poitout make wine plot by plot, the better to showcase each parcel's terroirs. The Stellaris Vaucoupin 1er Cru is from the Vaucoupin West-facing vineyard in the town of Chichée, on Kimmeridgian lands with thin soils and small chalky stones. Hand-harvested and fermented in stainless steel, it stays there until Spring, when it is lightly fined and filtered before being bottled.
