    Given the 80% shortfall in his 2016 Chablis, and with five full time employees to pay at Pattes-Loup, Thomas had to lean on friends to help balance the books, and purchased this extraordinarily good high altitude chardonnay from friends such as Etienne Fort (see wine numbers 29 and 30) and Baptiste Delmas working on the highest vineyards in Limoux. The earlier harvest date enabled Thomas to pick the grapes and press the juice, before shipping up to his cave in Chablis where it was aged in cuve during the winter before bottling in April. It is a delicious well balanced wine, with ripe citrus fruits, good texture and a saline finish. For drinking now to 2018.
