The classic Chablis of Château de Fleys is a great example from the appellation, showing an elegant nose of white flowers and peach. On the palate, aromas of citrus and pear take over, with a mineral touch and a clean finish. Definitely a good value Chablis, to be discovered!

|What experts say|
87/100 "The 2016 Chablis Villages is raised entirely in stainless steel. It has a simple, sherbet-tinged bouquet that is pretty, if missing some complexity and mineralité. The palate is nicely balanced and there is good body here, with well-judged acidity and perhaps just a little new oak smoothing out the walnut, almost Meursault-like finish. Fine."
2** "The Philippon family has kept the basic with a traditional vinification in tank to get this remarkable bottle, very typical of Chablis. The intense nose of white flower is not betrayed by the palate, which, in addition to this floral profile, presents a great mineral freshness. A powerful and harmonious Chablis, made to last." (previous vintage)
90/100 "Light gold. Enticing smoky, mineral nose showing white flowers notes. Lots of personality on the palate. Distinctively Chablis, as much as for its softness and racy flavours as for its well-proportioned structure. Young and fiery, needs decanting. Wonderful." (previous vintage)
