Maison Castel AOC Chablis
Origin: The Chablis AOC is part of Burgundy, one of the most prestigious wine regions in France. This AOC produces only white wines from the Chardonnay grape variety. The appellation’s mainly limestone soil and cool climate result in mineral, aromatic wines.
Vinification: Following a pneumatic pressing, a short pre-fermentation maceration takes place. The vinification is then carried out in stainless steel vats at a medium temperature. Ageing on the lees, along with « bâtonnage » (stirring up of the lees), brings the smoothness and minerality of the Chardonnay to the fore.
