Val de Mer Chablis 2021750 ml
Made from sustainably farmed Chardonnay harvested from three sites -- Des Couverts (in the village of Chablis), Prehy (near Courgis), and Lignorelles, this racy, mineral-driven white opens with classic notes of ripe apple and lemon blossom. Focused, yet generous on palate, the wine is incredibly balanced, with a long and lovely finish. This is a classic white for all seasons, that can stand on its own as an aperitif or with pork, poultry, and even roasted salmon or sea bass.
Patrick Piuze, a Montreal native, took the Burgundy by storm when he arrived over decade ago. He worked for Leflaive, Jean-Marc Brocard and Jean-Marie Guffens before starting his own label in 2008, and has very quickly come to be counted among the legendary names of the region. Patrick’s main intention is to make a real difference between "wine grower" and "winemaker". He doesn’t own any vineyard but has a strong influence as a counsellor for the wine growers. He established a trust building approach and a long-term partnership towards wine growers. This philosophy enables him to pick the best lots in Chablis, most of them of very old, prestige vineyards, including sites such as Les Preuses and Grenouilles. As for technique, he is a maverick. While 90% of Chablis is machine-harvested, he harvests everything by hand, a paramount factor in the quality of his wines. Val de Mer is Patrick Piuze’s second winery, co-owned with Moutard-Diligent.
