Butteaux is one of the most prized 1er cru sites in Chablis, which is actually a Premier Cru that is nested within the southern portion of the larger Montmains, and is flanked by Forets to the north. Butteaux is the steepest portion of the vineyard with limestone and white clay, and is known for being firm, powerful, and highly concentrated in comparison to Montmains or Forets. This is hallowed territory, with neighboring vines being owned by heavy hitters like Raveneau and Dauvissat. Fermentation takes place with indigenous yeasts in stainless steel, and then rests in large, neutral foudres for 12 months.

There’s a wonderful bitter almond, crushed oyster shell, key lime, and even saltiness to this wine, which complements all the fine stone fruit and apple flavors. It’s super long, wonderfully endowed, minerally, complex, and has a touch of creaminess that is widely appealing31.50
