The house controls a little over 11 hectares of vineyards, mainly in the Grand Cru village of Cramant and the Premier Cru village of Cuis. The East – South East facing Cramant vineyards have a thin layer of earth covering chalky subsoil which coupled with the chalky slopes of Cramant give the Diebolt-Vallois cuvées a mineral quality whilst also providing a richness that lingers long in the mouth.
The colour is a deep gold and the nose is full and rich. In the mouth there are hints of brioche and green fruit with a hit of chalky minerality. The finish is long and persistent. This is a gorgeously rich and vibrant Chardonnay that reflects the chalky terroir of Cuis and Cramant. We suspect this will keep well for many years to come.
