  • Tasting and food pairings

    Young and crispy, with delicate floral and fruity aromas, this wine, light to medium-body, is lighter in style than a Chablis. It retains though the typical mineral characteristics of the area. The wine is vinified in vats to ensure that its freshness, minerality, floral aromas and fruity notes are secured. It is ready to drink young when it has already developed its charm and finesse.
    To serve cold as an aperitif, or with starters, seafood, or snails.

    • Petit Chablis 2022 - Vert de Vin - June 2023

      Beautiful, juicy nose that offers brightness and deepness. Nicely marked by its terroir. It reveals notes of zest, mesocarp and small notes of flat peach associated with a slight hint of mandarin blossom as well as a very discreet hint of exotic fruits. The mouth is fruity, well-balanced, beautifully gourmand and offers minerality, a small fat, suavity, tension, roundness, juiciness as well as an aerial side. On the palate, this wine expresses notes of juicy/pulpy lemon, juicy/pulpy white peach and small notes of crushed nectarine associated with a touch of crushed pear as well as hints of white flowers, zest as well as a subtle mineral/racy touch. Good length.

    • Petit Chablis 2022 - Burgundy Report, Bill Nanson - "Complex"

      A more mineral and aromatic width. Intense, a more sour style vs the Chitry. Complex, slightly reductive finishing flavours - but long too. (UK, March 2024)

      Not as broad a nose as the Saint-Bris but with a good airy freshness. Intense - acid forward - a bit of austerity for sure. Let's see how this wine grows before commercialization. It's rather frank today.

      This has attractive pears and peaches with some pear custard, leading to a palate that has attractive freshness and an easygoing, smooth, melon and pear finish. Drink now.

    • Petit Chablis 2016 - James Suckling - February 2018 - 90/100

      This would be a great choice for anyone who enjoys Chablis but would also like a wine with plenty of fruit and no oak to obscure it. Lovely citrus character. Clean and rather long finish. Drink now or in 2019 and 2020.

    • Simonnet-Febvre Petit Chablis 2015 - 90/100 - James Suckling - April 2017

      Pretty aromas of hay and cement with dried-berry and apple character. Medium body, fresh acidity and an attractive cooked-apple and pear finish. Drink now.
