CLOTILDE DAVENNE - PETIT CHABLIS 2020

 

TASTING NOTES

Beneath its bright, light gold colour, this Petit Chablis cultivates aromas of white flowers (hawthorn, acacia) mixed with citrus notes (lemon, graapefruit) on a mineral flint background. The palate is lively and light, balanced in acidity.

The enthusiastic attack continues with a pleasant roundness. It's iodised breath belongs to the characters of the country. Its richness matches its freshness to offer the palate a persistent and perfectly composed sensation.

ABOUT

Daughter of Burgundy, Clotilde Davenne grew up in the countryside, at the foot of the Morvan.

This childhood in nature forged her sensitive approach to the world. Everything with smells, flavours, colours, in a mixture of sensations renewed every day.

With her nose in the air and her taste buds on the lookout, she learns vegetable scents: lime blossom, acacia, mint, crumpled herbs, meadow roses, damp undergrowth.

There are also those from the garden: artichokes, peas, beans, which she often crunched on the spot. Games in the orchard: cherries, plums, raspberries and walnuts, until returning to the kitchen: jams, cottage cheese, cakes. Olfactory layers that create delicacies.

Later, Clotilde wished to take advantage of this sensory potential: making wine as a profession when she decided to study oeonology.

As a young graduate, she began with the reds of Beaujolais, discovered the sparkling vineyards of California, before returning to acclimatise the whites of Burgundy in Chablis. As cellar manager, she practices the expression of the terroirs through the wines she has  been making since 1989.
