The “Les Lys” Premier Cru vineyard is located on the left bank of the Serein River, overlooking the villages of Chablis and Milly. Our plot lies at the heart of the Chablis appellation with vines planted halfway up the slope. One factor that contributes to this wine’s expressiveness is its unusual exposure: east/northeast. The proportion of clay in the soil is higher than usual in Chablis, which overlies Kimmeridgian sub-stratum, which exists throughout the Chablis region. This area is cool and the grapes ripen slowly and gradually in the afternoon shade. Exposure and terroir guarantee the minerality, finesse and elegance of this Premier Cru.
Albert Bichot Chablis 1er Cru “Les Lys” 2020
The nose boasts distinct notes of white flowers (“Lys” is French for lily) and citrus fruit. The palate is elegant and finely chiselled with a discreet marine note that is typical of the Chablis appellation. Beautiful, long-lasting finish with a fleeting tinge of acidity.
