IN CHABLIS is a little cellar, known as The Wine Aroma cellar.
In that little room the whole gamut of wine aromas from Burgundy wines are captured in flasks; each just beautiful to look at, never mind smell.
A glass case of fresh red fruits – blackcurrant, cherry, grape, to name but a few – has the aroma of classic pinot noir.
One of fresh butter, cider, beer and yeast is characteristic of young Chardonnay wine aromas when very young. Another, containing roses, issues floral notes reflecting typically white wines of Chablis Grand Cru and Chablis Premier Cru.
A fascinating and almost hypnotising room.
