Exclusive: 2020 Jérémy Arnaud 'Vau De Vey' Chablis 1er Cru

New Chablis! Music to my ears. Having been floored by so many wonderful bottles from its legendary producers over the years, new discoveries from this fabled terroir touch and excite me deeply.

Today's wine sourced from the steep Premier Cru Vineyard of 'Vau de Vey' is easily the best Chablis from a young winemaker I have tasted in recent memory. A dazzling and crystal-clear expression of Chablis' unique sea-tinged minerality. It spotlights the chalky, Kimmeridgian soils and brings Chablis' one of kind terroir to the fore in a way that I find extremely compelling. Burgundy lovers take note: Jérémy Arnaud is one of the most important new names to know, stock up before prices soar. 

I'm thrilled to offer the only bottles of Jérémy Arnaud 'Vau de Vey' Chablis Premier Cru in South Carolina!
100% Chardonnay from a very steep section of Vau de Vey near the famed Montmains 1er Cru. This climat is famous for its southeast exposure, giving the vines only morning light, leading to wines full of tension and cut. Hand harvested, as the hill is to steep for machinery and fermented and aged for two years in a combination of stainless steel and barrel (10% new). 

Blooms into a bouquet of zesty lemon and green pear with crushed seashell minerality and a touch of flinty reduction. The palate is a masterclass in balance, displaying tensity and texture in an electric display of more concentrated citrus and saline undertones. A Chablis for the ages, crafted by one of its youngest vignerons. 
Jérémy Arnaud is making a name for himself among winemakers young and old alike. He hails from a long line of vignerons in Chablis, but only decided to make wine later in life.

Although he could have simply inherited his family's vineyards, he chose to do things his own way before taking over the family estate: “It was important to me to start from nothing, to prove myself, and to freely assert my convictions.” He bought a 0.55ha parcel in 2016 while completing his oenology training and makes fewer than 5000 bottles a year.
