This comes from a tiny yield of chardonnay produced from a massale selection of cuttings from Anselme Selosse’s Avize vineyard and a famous Chablis grand cru. In fact the soils and terroir here are very similar to the limestone vineyards of the Chablis Grand Cru Valmur. Made from the 2008 vintage, oak aged and disgorged without dosage in Nov 2010, it is richer and more complex than many blanc de blancs but at the same time has a tightly wound acidity.
