Description

Known as the antiquarians of Chablis, the father and son team of Gérard and Lilian Duplessis have gained a reputation for their “immortal”, age‐worthy wines and unparalleled store of older vintages. For those who love the intense minerality and glacially slow development of great Chablis, these are wines of reference.

Tasting Notes: A rich, assertive wine that is also complex, subtle, and well balanced, with plenty of citrus and white fruit aromas over a backdrop of slate and light saline notes.

Serve With: Excellent with seafood of all types, especially oysters and scallops.
