All Good Things To Those Who Wait
LIMITED QUANTITIES
Only 150 cases of this amazing white Burgundy are imported. With yields down 30% this year alone, we will not be able to secure any more of this delicious Chardonnay after our initial allocation. Don't hesitate on this one!
    A two year stretch of inclement weather and low yields has prevented one of our favorite Chardonnays from coming to the U.S. market. Now that it finally has, we are sad to say there is very little available.
    For years, customers have been requesting the bright, crisp and refreshing Petit Chablis of Piuze. And with the weather fast approaching the 80's here on the east coast, the release of this sensational white couldn't be more timely.
    Petit Chablis is immediately west of the village of Chablis. This tiny region overlooks the Grand Cru vineyards of Chablis. There, the higher elevation and mixed limestone white soil is similar to that of Champagne and Sancerre. This terroir creates a brighter and crisper version of the Chardonnay grape than anywhere in France.
    Piuze "is a truly thrilling new producer of hand-crafted Chablis...I highly recommend trying a few examples of the Piuze wines if your taste runs to pure and completely unadorned classically styled Chablis." Jancis Robinson
    The 2014 Piuze Petit Chablis is a brilliantly refreshing Chardonnay. It is vibrant, crisp and refreshing. Rippling with fresh green apples, white peach and lemon zest, this zippy Chardonnay boasts the flinty acidity of the region. Enjoy now and over the next five years, pair this wonderful white with seafood of any kind, soft goat cheese, salads or simply by itself on a warm day.
