Chablis 1er Cru
Michaut's 0.6 hectare parcel of Beauroy is located just outside his hometown of Beines, across from the reservoir his grandfather helped create in the 1979. Beauroy stretches quite a ways from Beine towards Chablis, and Michaut's vines are in a lieu-dit within Beauroy called Côte de Savant (translates to wise-man's hill). Michaut produces two wines from this same parcel. Like all of Michaut's wines, this cuvée is vinified with native yeasts. Beauroy is fermented and aged in stainless steel tanks, while Côte de Savant is vinified and aged in 500 L oak demi-muids.
