Butteaux is one of the ‘climats’ of Premier cru Montmains which is regarded as one of the top Premier cru vineyard sites in Chablis lying beside or below Vaillons. Being one of the most southern locations for 1er cru in Chablis it is regarded as a cooler site with slightly later harvest. Here there is a very thin layer of clay which overlays the Kimmeridgian marls. ”The 2019 Chablis Butteaux 1er Cru has a tightly wound, backward nose, quite earthy at first, then developing scents of Granny Smith apples and flint with time in the glass. The medium-bodied palate delivers fine acidity that cuts through the rich citrus fruit, along with touches of white peach and a tang of quince. Lightly spiced and quite persistent toward the saline finish. Excellent.” 92 points, Neal Martin, Vinous, October 2021.
