Tasting Notes

Montreal-native Patrick Piuze crafts his wines to best express their terroir. Fyé comes from a 2.5 hectare parcel; this vineyard sits just opposite Blanchots. Great structure, mineral backbone and stone fruit flavors. Unoaked.

Staff Pick Notes

Patrick Piuze has a simple philosophy to wine making, let the terroir speak for itself and technique should take a back seat. The portfolio of wines in his terroir series across the Chablis AOC pick up individuality in vineyards ranging from age worthy Grand Cru to youthful Petit Chablis. "Terroir de Fye" highlights the unique minerality coming from the region's famous Kimmeridgian soils (composed of sea shell fossils and limestone). Closer to Champagne geographically than to the rest of Burgundy, Chablis wines have a tingling acidity that is unmistakable. The village of Fye lies just east of the Grand Cru vineyard Blanchot. Fresh and clean minerality, with notes of lemon zest and star fruit. An elevated and casual wine, it captures the purity of great Chablis in the glass.

Fans of rich, unctuous, and well-oaked Chardonnay will enjoy Chassagne-Montrachet, whose age-worthy offerings offer all the fatness...

Chardonnay

From Champagne to Chablis, it's hard (not to mention unpleasant) to avoid this famous white variety. During a huge popularity surge beginning in the late 1980s, Chardonnay plantings have increased dramatically -- not only in California's wine country, with which the variety is nearly synonymous, but also in Burgundy (its original, Old World home) and just about everywhere else in the winemaking...
