New Vintage of One of the Most Extraordinary Wines of France

Poitout Inextinct New Header
The new vintage of the most exciting wine I have discovered in years.....
Stunning New Label!

Early last year I come across a wine that is truly unique. By that I don't mean just very special, but something that has no peers.

Whilst at the Grand Jours tasting in Chablis a friend of mine recommended I taste the wines of Louis and Catherine Poitout. The domaine is small at just 18 hectares but amongst their vineyards is something unique.

They have a 0.55 hectare plot of Petit Chablis with pre-phylloxera vines. The enormous old vines have survived because the high water content proved impossible for the wine louse to navigate in the late 19th century.

Apart from Bollinger Champagne's Vieilles Vignes Francaises I know of no other Pre Phylloxera parcel in France (correct me if I am wrong).

The ancient vines are very low cropping and produce around 1000 bottles a year. The 2014 was a real hit with our customers and I hope many of you have opened a bottle to see just how exciting the wine is.

Not long ago I received info about the new 2015 vintage of the wine. The domaine has a stylish new label top reflect the prestige of this rare wine. 

In a time of spiraling prices we offer the new 2015 vintage at the same price as the 2014. 

Poitout Inextinct New Bottle Petit Chablis Franc de Pied L'Inextinct 2015
Normally $149.95
Pre Arrival Price $127.50

Not cheap but a truly exceptional bottle of wine for the serious connoisseur.

Darren Harris: 
Wow, from the nose there's no confusing where this wine is from. Absolutely classic, oyster shell, mineral bouquet. There's lime and grapefruit playing the background. Some gingerbread notes. The palate show more citrus, some sherbet and a brilliantly subtle hint of sulphides add extra complexity. The acid is not quite as high as in 2014 but the wine has race and drive and most of all typicity. The finish is long with power and a saline twang that I love in Chablis. And like the 2014 this wine has the complexity of many a Grand Cru. A very special wine that I am beginning to believe transcends each vintage. With just 1000 or so bottles made annually from a low cropped plot of 0.55 hectares this is a wine that all serious Burgundy lovers should have at least a few bottles of in their cellar. You could say I am impressed.
P.S. The domaine has changed the label and the name of this wine in 2015. They have dropped the Petit Chablis and simply call the wine L'Inextinct Franc de Pied Chardonnay. Such is the quality of this very special pre phylloxera vine bottling.

From the domaine on the Franc de Pied L'Inextinct cuvee: The Louis and Catherine Inextinct Franc de Pied Petite Chablis is hand harvested and vinified in stainless steel, and remains there until the spring. Extremely lightly fined and filtered, this 100+ year old vine Chablis displays a lovely perfume of minty minerality, lemon, ginger, white almonds with a hint of light red fruits. An extraordinary complex nose characterized by a medium frame on the palate that is elegant yet powerful remaining consistent throughout the long and lengthy finish.

Not to be missed!
The 2014 vintage is being extremely highly praised. I tasted a couple of hundred 2014's at the Grand Jours de Bourgogne earlier in the year and it was easy to see what the hype is all about. If you love classic, mineral, acid Chablis these are a must. 
Still a nice selection available.
