Description

Quite rare in the village of Sury-en-Vaux, flint soils are found on the outskirts of the Forest of Charnes where 'Les Chailloux' is being produced. The minerality here is striking! This plot contains less than one hectare of this type of soil, with vines being between 13 and 40 years of age. The grapes obtained are vinified and matured exclusively in barrels for less than one year. The wine is clear cut and mineral. The fruit is expressed through smoky characteristics. Precise and taut on the palate, it is ideal to accompany fine fish or shellfish.
