Lucien M Chablis
Lucien M Chablis from Burgundy in France
Frustrated at paying too high a price for the type of nondescript wine which all too often masquerades as good Burgundy? So were we! Lucien M aims to take the pain out of this beguiling but frustrating region. We have sought out some of the finest growers in the region to try to capture the essence of each appellation.
We have limited our first release to just three wines, seeking to produce the finest possible quality. Stylishly presented, we absolutely guarantee these wines will show that you don‘t have to pay a fortune for real Burgundy. Pinot Noir is the essence of Burgundy. We chose this wine after exhaustive tastings throughout the region with some excellent young winemakers. We were after a consistency of flavour and a degree of typicity difficult to find in a wine of this price.
This Chablis was made using grapes from the well-drained south-west facing slopes in the village of Beine. Its subsoil alternates layers of Kimmerdgian clay and limestone, imparting that unique balance of fruit and acidity that is the hallmark of good Chablis. Viticulture is based on respect of the soil and nature: minimal treatments, no herbicides, no pesticides.
Kimmeridgian - alternate layers of limestone and clay encrusted with marine fossils. Well drained, facing South and West.
Temperature controlled alcoholic fermentation in stainless steel tanks. Malolactic completed. Bottled in the Spring following harvest.
Mouth-watering citrus fruit flavours integrate with the natural minerality of classic Chablis to produce a stunning wine. Unoaked to maintain the purity of the style.
