Originally from Montreal, Patrick Piuze’s wine journey started when he was just 18 and met Marc Chapoutier. The great Rhône luminary obviously made an impression on young Patrick, because after working briefly in a wine bar in Canada he took the personal gamble to de-camp to Burgundy to pursue his passion for wine-making (in 2000). Piuze managed to land a position at Olivier Leflaive and worked also at Verget, before his own micro négociant business in Chablis in 2008.

Patrick Piuze is passionate about Chablis’ special terroir and sources grapes from the best terroirs and the most meticulous growers. Patrick Piuze’s knowledge of Chablis’ terroirs runs deep, and his wines are pure expressions of Chardonnay. He is widely praised for achieving a balance between Chablis’ characteristic minerality and Chardonnay’s fleshy fruit.

Wine making:
This comes from a single vineyard named “Des Couverts”, from the village lieu-dit Vaulorent, not the premier cru portion of this slope, on the north-facing side of the Grand Cru hill. The vineyard lies in a cool corridor and is typically the last wine to be harvested at the village level by Patrick and his team. The soil is composed of 100% Kimmeridgian limestone with a bit more clay than other parts of Chablis; the soil dates back to the 200-million-year old Jurassic period.


A supremely delicious bouquet wafting from the glass in a beautiful blend of pear, apple, oyster shell, chalky minerality, lemon blossoms and a top-note of beeswax. The palate is focused and crisp, with a pretty core, and a long, complex and classy finish.
