The 2019 Chablis Les Butteaux 1er Cru has an elegant bouquet of yellow plum, honeysuckle and touches of sea spray, all detailed and focused. The palate is crisp, taut and lightly spiced, with good depth, fine salinity and spiciness coming through toward the harmonious finish. Fine.
From 75 year old vines on Kimmeridgian limestone and clay soil. Butteaux is a sub-climate of 1er Cru Montmains. A chalky soil mixed with clay gives this left bank Premier Cru richness.
