Patrick Piuze has made quite the name for himself within the motherland of Chardonnay. Originally from Montreal, Patrick began his own label in 2008 after earning respect from the locals and subsequently, access to the region’s finest fruit. Contrary to most, he harvests everything by hand, focusing on terroir-driven wines from old vines within the original boundaries of Chablis. This Premier Cru is intrepid and will age beautifully. 

VM91-93: "Light-medium yellow. Captivating chalky pungency to the aromas of white nectarine, citrus zest, mint and herbs. Intensely flavored and dry but not austere, conveying a sappy, juicy quality and a subtly layered impression. A more intellectual style of wine than the Forêts, finishes with a firm citrus character and excellent precision. Production here was 45 hectoliters per hectare after some losses to mildew; Piuze noted that his neighbors "undertreated" their vines and the wind carried the spores." - Stephen Tanzer

WA90: "The 2016 Chablis 1er Cru Butteaux is very conservative on the nose, almost reluctantly opening with light sea spray and seaweed-like scents. This is certainly very evocative of the sea. The palate is well defined with a pleasant salinity, continuing that marine theme. It is fresh and bright with a punchy, sappy finish. This is a Chablis that is full of character." - The Wine Advocate
