    Lacy and ethereal, this grand cru shows the more delicate side of the Chablis terroir. Juicy pears, fragrant citrus blossoms and gentle saline notes roll gracefully across a soft palate into a persistent, mineral finish.

    Product information

    The vineyard is located on the right bank of the Serein River, northeast of the town of Chablis on the grand cru slope. As the southernmost of the grand crus, it enjoys excellent southeastern sun exposure, which allows for a longer and slower ripening of the grapes. Its soil is composed of 100% Kimmeridgian limestone and a little bit of clay whose formation dates back to the 200-million-year old Jurassic period.. Blanchots takes its name from this white soil, where well-drained white and some blue clay deposits and fossils contribute to the stony character of the wine.

    In only a short time, Patrick Piuze has gone from managing a wine bar in his native Québec to becoming one of Chablis’ most prominent rising stars. In 2008, after working for Olivier Leflaive, Verget and Domaine Jean-Marc Brocard, Patrick started his own micro-négoce. Sourcing 20 hectares of old-vine fruit from respected growers throughout Chablis, he crafts over 20 cuvees, including grand cru, premier cru, single-village wines, a Petit Chablis sourced from a maximum of two parcels adjacent to grand cru vineyards, an Aligoté from Saint Bris, and a méthode traditionnelle sparkling wine from the Tonnerrois. He is one of the rare producers to identify the nuances from village to village within the general AOC Chablis and even distinguishes between microclimates in his two cuvees of grand cru Bougros.

    Patrick’s belief in long, natural fermentations allows him to create powerful yet graceful wines that, even in less ripe vintages, show a soft, penetrating texture. Lively, nervy, and pure, they also exhibit soft creamy textures, layered complexity, and the contagious vitality of its maker.
