  • Introduction

    • The most charming Premier Cru. Refined, fruity, and mineral above all, with an elegant finish.

  • Vineyard Profile

    • Les Beauroys grow on Kimmeridgian limestone foothills and give Chablis’ minerality to the wine but also a typical richness which makes it a great wine.

    • Soil: Kimmeridgian limestone
  • Vintage Report

    • The 2021 vintage could almost be described as late as we have been used to earlier and earlier harvests in recent years. The manual harvest started on September 21st in the parcels of Vieille Voye / Vaillons / Butteaux and Blanchots. Following episodes of rain, the sanitary pressure was present but controlled by our technical teams. In the end, the juices presented promising balanced
      profiles which were confirmed during the maturation. The tastings conducted in the cellars showed the finesse and the good acidity present in the wines.

  • Vinification

    • Hand harvest and sorting at the winery. Fermentation in oak casks and stainless steel tanks. Aging on fine lees in the same casks and tanks.

  • Technical Information

    • Varietal Composition: 100% Chardonnay
    • Alcohol: 12.5%
  • Tasting Notes

    • “The first year with all barrel elevage for this wine. Also a subtle reduction – here with an extra width of aroma – becoming more floral with air. A little rounder but no barrel flavor – complex – an extra depth of middle and finishing flavor – super. That’s a great Beauroy.” -Bill Nanson
