Dry, fruity and elegant.
Tasting Notes: Subtle aromas of white flowers and green apple on the nose. The palate is elegant and very appealing. Dry with good fruit and a touch of steely minerality in the finish. Fermentation and maturation takes place in stainless steel, to give a fresh clean style.
The Hamelin family has been growing vines in Chablis for six generations, each one adding to the holdings and developing the winemaking techniques. The domaine now stands at thirty-seven hectares, spread between the villages of Poinchy, Beines and Lignorelles.
Grapes for the Petit Chablis are grown the village of Lignorelles, on the edge of the Chablis vineyards. Most of the vines are on a plateau, and the soil is slightly clayey. Minimal treatments are used in the vineyards, and grass is allowed to grow between rows in a third of them.
The grapes were pressed and the must fed by gravity to temperature- controlled stainless steel tanks for fermentation. The wine was bottled without having seen any oak.
