Chablis Orangerie, 2018 | Chablis, Burgundy
Region: Chablis, Burgundy
Farming: Certified organic & biodynamic
Tasting Note: L’Orangerie is located behind the Clos Béru, a small lieu-dit atypically rich in clay, producing a wine with a strong fruity character with notes of orange marmalade and warm spices. Yet, because the vine roots plunge deep into soil the wine keeps its typical complex Chablis tensile and mineral characteristics.
Background: Because of the clay, Athénaïs finds the ageing is best suited to Austrian Stockinger 500 litre barrels – an Austrian cooper who uses Austrian, German, Hungarian and Romanian – the source of the oak and the larger size impact very little oak influence on the wine.
Serving: Cold - but not too cold! (10–12°C).
