La Manufacture (w/ Benjamin Laroche) - Le Fôret 1er Cru, Chablis (2018)
White flowers and pear on the nose. Well balanced structure, white fruits and a distinct minerality make up a very elegant and finessed palate. This is a linear wine, very nuanced with an incredible mineral finish.
La Fôret premier cru vineyards are renowned throughout Chablis for their Kimmeridgian soils that have a vast array of clay compositions and colourations. The excellent heat retention and drainage of this particular cru's soil results in Chablis with linear acidity and delicacy. Fermented in stainless steel with 30% of aged for 6 to 8 months aging in French oak double barrels.
La Manufacture is committed to rigorous site and fruit selection with their long-term grower-partners.
