An exceptional terroir
The Chablis appellation is in Burgundy, one of France's most prestigious wine regions. Only white wines from Chardonnay grapes are made in this appellation whose mainly limestone soils and cool climate result in wines of great purity and complexity.
Maison Castel know-how
Maison Castel works hand-in-hand with an HVE-certified grower whose clay-limestone vineyards have good exposure, and the presence of many older vines (more than 40 years old) brings structure and concentration to this wine. The Maison Castel teams closely follow the traditional vinification process: direct pressing, settling, fermentation at controlled temperature (18-20°C), followed by malolactic fermentation and lees ageing to bring out the roundness and minerality of the Chardonnay grapes. Blending is done in the spring.
