The Grenouille or "Frog" is the flagship wine of the estate. This grand cru is hand harvested from vines older than 50 years, their roots deep in soils that are a mixture of clay and limestone. The wine is matured for 18 months in oak before bottling. This is a bold and powerful wine with a backbone of minerality that assures perfect balance.
Grenouilles is the smallest of the seven official Chablis Grand Cru climats, located just above the banks of the river Serein. The southern exposure of the Grenouilles site leads to perceptibly riper flavors in its Chardonnay-based wines, which are associated with stonefruit, orange peel and honey, softer and more open in their youth than those from the other climats. They can also vary considerably with age, sometimes showing power and sometimes delicate balance.
The triangular vineyard lies in the very center of the hill that hosts all of the Chablis Grand Cru vineyards, sandwiched between the Valmur and Vaudesir Grand Cru sites.
