The Château Grenouilles vineyard, wholly owned by members of the La Chablisienne cooperative, is in the upper part of Grenouilles Grand Cru. As such, this is major Chablis, a wine that needs maybe 10 years’ aging. But already, you can discern the richness of this wine, its powerful yellow fruits, honey and toast, dense in texture as well as vivid with acidity.
La Chablisienne’s flagship wine, from a parcel within the Grenouilles Grand Cru vineyard, has plenty of power, ripe fruit, touches of peach and creamed citrus fruits. A light amount of toast adds to the mix to complete an ageworthy, long-term wine. Imported by multiple U.S. importers.
The vines here have produced a 2009 that is hugely ripe, rounded and concentrated. With its sweet wood and vanilla flavors, with balancing apple and apricot fruits, it’s a wine for pleasure soon, but it will also age.
The 18 acres of Château de Grenouilles are a monopoly of the La Chablisienne cooperative. A huge, ripe wine, very fruity, with yellow peaches. The richness is balanced with a steely core of minerality. Lively acidity finishes this impressive wine.
