Even though the nature of the soil is the key element of the ‘terroir’, many other natural factors influence the quality, typicity and expression of a wine, such as the direction which the vine plots are facing, the altitude, the depth, the climatic conditions of the year and the micro climate. Finally, the role of man is a determining factor in wine production. Thierry Hamelin is that man, making Chablis' that over-deliver in price quality ratio. Very pale straw in color with aromas of stone and green apple. The palate is crisp and fresh with medium acidity. Notes of almond, mineral quartz and saline comes to mind.
