Chablis 'Terroir de Fyé', Patrick Piuze, France 2015

from 25.00

The village of Fyé sits in the shadows of the Grand Cru vineyards of Chablis and the parcel Patrick sources for this cuvée, the ‘Terroir de Fyé’, lies on the slope between the Premier Cru ‘Montee de Tonnerre’ and the Grand Cru ‘Blanchot’. There’s plenty of ripe fruit on the nose, as 2015 was a warm and sunny vintage, but there’s also a sense of elegance with its hints of camomile, apple granita and a limestone coolness from the soil that keeps it vital and nervy. It’s a classic Chablis, but one that has all the hallmarks of a Premier Cru, not a mere village wine, namely, precision of flavour, ‘wet stone’ minerality, immaculate balance and excellent length. 12% alc. Drink now-2024. 

Press reviews:

Jancis Robinson.com (Tamlyn Currin): "Smells of oat bran and cream and honey. Such a beautiful Jacquard-complex weave of tight citrus, soft white fruit, cream, flint and chalk. Lingers with the weightlessness of a cashmere scarf, edged with tight lines. Drink 2017-2024." 17 points

The Wine Advocate: “The 2015 Chablis Terroir de Fye has a delightful and quite animated nose compared to the Terroir de Corgis, with hints of honeysuckle and jasmine. The palate is well balanced with a crisp line of acidity, quite saline in the mouth with a precise finish that delivers plenty of accuracy and energy. This is worth seeking out for those seeking precise Chablis in a vintage when it is not as common as others. 90 points
