This super generic bottling comes from the same vineyard as Canadian Patrick Piuze's Bas de Chapelot. It's the most accomplished of the 'terroir' range in 2018, dubbed a 'baby Montée de Tonnerre' by the man who made it. Leesy, fine and very subtly oaked, it's refreshingly light in alcohol with good dry extract and a salty, bone dry finish.

Touches Chapelot on the west-to-southwest edge, this has stonier character to the nose with lemon and grapefruit aromas and flavors, as well as a very fresh, mineral wash to close. Drink now.

From the lower portion of Chapelot that isn't entitled to the premier cru appellation, Piuze's 2018 Chablis Terroir de Fyé wafts from the glass with aromas of pear, apples, fresh mint, beeswax and oyster shell. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, satiny and layered, with a racy but textural profile and a saline finish. One of the more elegant wines in this range, it's well worth seeking out.

The 2018 Patrick Piuze Chablis Terroir de Fyé is perky and bright. This is a prototype Chablis. Enjoy a glass with fresh tuna and salmon sashimi. Tasted: September 9, 2019, San Francisco, CA)
