Caze Thibaut Le Chemin Des Plants 2017
Pure Chardonnay from a lieu-dit located on the banks of the Marne river. Oak vinified and limited production. On the nose there is smoky, dried tropical fruit with this gorgeously piercing line of lemon peel and butter. The palate is sensual with this grippy, slightly undergone oak note on the mid to late creating a wonderful bitter profile. The tension on the finish is just amazing – so juicy and crisp.
A producer we fell in love with when we first tried their wines a few years ago, and, a producer that perfectly captures what Sip is all about; brilliant wines, tiny production, and a lovely human being. Fabien is the 10th generation winemaker in the family. Working with vines in Chatillon sur Marne, he creates precise and elegant wines with a lovely structure.
