Christophe et Fils is basically a one man show. Sébastien inherited a tiny parcel (half an acre) in Petit Chablis – from which today’s offer comes. He farms sustainably, hand-harvests, and ferments with native yeast, mostly in steel. Many of the grapes date back to plantings from the 60’s and are located behind the Grand cru slope and Premier crus of the Serein river’s right bank.
The 2022 Petit Chablis has an attractive nose of citrus rind, white flowers, and wet stone. In the palate, the wine is racy and mineral with just a touch of salinity. The hallmark of the great 2022s will be tension and length and Sébastien’s little wine has both in spades. Incredible acidic cut will make this fantastic at the table and a great candidate for short term aging.
The bad news is that there are only miniscule amounts of Sébastien’s wines coming into the states. Lucky for us, due to my passion project to find wines for date night, I reserved my allocation prior to them being snatched up by the NYC Sommelier set.
Grab a bottle for $80 bucks the next time you’re in the city at Bar Boulud or stock up here (until they’re gone) for under $30 a bottle.
