Le Clos du Château is the latest cuvée form the Philippon family, made exclusively form vines located around the Château and inside closed walls - which is called a "Clos". This small plots has been managed within the sustainable Agriculture practice - no chemicals, manual harvest - and has been ages for 20% in oak barrels. The result is a slightly more dense structure than the classic Chablis, with a discrete buttery touch, the same aromas of white flowers and yellow fruit (peach) on a mineral background. Quite a surprising but classy Chablis!

|What experts say|
89/100 "The 2015 Chablis Clos du Château comes from 40-year-old vines and is raised for 16 months in 80% stainless steel and 20% oak barrels. It has a clean and precise bouquet with a fine bead of acidity and quite a mineral drive, with a touch of shucked oyster shell developing with time. The palate is well balanced with a brisk, citric opening. I appreciate the terseness and tautness of this Chablis; it feels quite persistent on the sappy finish. Very fine."
