About This Wine:
Founded by Stephanie Courtault and her husband Vincent Michelet in 2008, Stephanie is the daughter of Jean Claude Courtault, who ran a family winery founded only in 1984. He has since retired and passed along control to Stephanie and her husband. The Courtault holdings are focused around Vignorelles, where clay-rich soils tend to produce a more textural, structured style of Chablis. 
Their Petit Chablis is farmed from several plateau parcels situated in and around the village of Beine, about three miles west of Chablis proper. After grapes are harvested and sorted in the vineyard, the pressed juice undergoes both alcoholic and malolactic fermentation in stainless steel tanks. The wine then ages on its fine lees and is bottled with a slight filtration in the spring of the following year. 
Tasting Notes: Gold color with green highlights. The nose is expressive with lime and citrus fruit aromas. A lovely supple and crisp mouthfeel – the tension between the ripe fruit flavors and the mineral notes make this Petit Chablis a true wine lover’s wine.

Pairings: Ideal as an aperitif, the wine is an excellent companion to seafood.

Varietal: 100% Chardonnay
Soil type: Portlandian (Limestone)

Vinification:
Machine harvested at full maturity; pneumatic press; fermentation in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks for 8-10 days; M.L (2 months after the harvest); aging on the lees; racking; fining if necessary; cold stabilization; filtration right before bottling.


Ratings & Reviews

Wine Enthusiast:
"Ripe pear and gentle citrus characterize this wine's nose. The palate brims with rounded pear but comes with a sprightly body that has balance and freshness." - Anne Krebiehl, MW (12/31/20)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (2017 Vintage):
"The 2017 Petit Chablis offers up aromas of fresh peach, white flowers, orange rind and oyster shell, framed by a delicate touch of reduction, followed by a medium-bodied, tensile and precise palate that's racier and more incisive than the Jean-Claude Courtault bottling (both domaines being run by the same family in the same winery). It's a very creditable and eminently thirst-quenching effort that's crying out for crustaceans." - William Kelley (Aug 2019)
