Philippe Pacalet Chablis 1er Cru Beauroy 2018
- White Wine
It expresses a broad and kaleidoscopic aromatic profile, between clearly mineral notes, of peaches, lemon, grapefruit, apricots and ginger, and then flows into a very fine and rich sip, savory, mineral, of infinite persistence.
A relative newcomer who started in 1999, Pacalet does not own any vineyards but instead rents a selection of plots with interesting terroirs. Until 2007 winemaking took place in several borrowed spaces, but then Pacalet purchased a 19th-Century cellar in the heart of Beaune from the de Montille family. He is also regarded as a leading light in the natural wine movement.
