Charlene-Laurent Pinson 2019 Petit Chablis, Burgundy, France
The Pinson family can trace their vine growing roots back to 1640 but it was in 1940 that they stopped selling all their fruit and began selling consumer direct. Laurent and his daughter Charlene are running the estate now and believe that their job is to protect the terroir of each parcel, even in wines like this Petit Chablis. Each little plot is farmed sustainably and fermented in different ways to let the soils speak for themselves. Super expressive for Petit Chablis! Very herbal and stony on the palate with a bit more stuffing than one might expect for Petit Chablis. Lots of generosity and some fairly complex layering.
